I performed an EFA on a 37 item instrument and ended up having a 7 factor solution. I then performed a CFA and ended up with Standardized loadings greater than 1. Do you have any ideas as to why this might be happening? Thank you! Rachel
Pursuant this conversation, how do we determine which items to retain when we have factor loadings >1? We performed a geomin roation on 25 items with 205 subjects. Literature suggests that items loading <.40 should not be retained, but none of our items load <.40. Our largest item loads 10.60 on one factor.
