I am interesting in understanding the advantages of using a single factor with single items instead of creating parcels of those items. However, most of the literature I have come across discusses the advantages of parceling.

I wanted to specifically know what are the advantages of using a factor with single items. Could you please recommend some articles which deal with that?

Thank you,

There is a huge literature on this but I am not familiar with any particular article that I can recommend. Perhaps someone else is. Unless there is a natural way to parcel the items, I would use individual items.
