Summary

During early attempts to interpret factors represented in scores on the Gumpgookies test, an instrument designed to tap motivation to achieve in young children, the factors identified by ordinary factor-analytic techniques were found to be confounded by the subjects' response sets. This paper proposes a method for defining objectively irrelevant item response tendencies. A procedure for deriving independent factor scores from a set of items in which scores are also independent of irrelevant item trait responses is developed. The stages involved in the investigation are discussed and all steps of statistical computation are included. (Author/PR)
