Introduction to Confirmatory Factor Analysis and Structural Equation Modeling
Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) is a powerful and flexible statistical technique that has become an increasingly popular tool in all areas of psychology including educational research. CFA focuses on modeling the relationship between manifest (i.e., observed) indicators and underlying latent variables (factors).
