Abstract : Three topics in factor analysis are covered: (a) a reliability coefficient for assessing the quality of a maximum likelihood factor analysis, (b) an application of three-mode factor analysis to serial learning data, showing variations in learning curves over stages of learning and individuals, and (c) the use of personal probability functions to define and fit simple structure hyperplanes in factor rotation.
