Abstract : A model is presented for Three-Mode Factor Analysis that allows for the estimation of the specifics associated with each of two variable modes and the combination variable in addition to a determination of the common-factor matrices of the two variable modes and the interrelating core matrix. The model is designed to facilitate the investigation of the common factor spaces of the variables when the unique contributions of these variables are expected to be reasonably large. A computational routine and the results obtained with the model from applying it to three sets of data are given. The results from applying the model indicate that it is possible to identify and isolate halo effects which do not persist over time and specificity of a variable which is not dependent on situations of administration.
