Sample text

A factor-based score, on the other hand, is merely a linear composite of the variables that demonstrate meaningful loadings for the component in question. In the preceding analysis, for example, items 4, 5, and 6 demonstrated meaningful loadings for the “financial giving” component. Therefore, you could calculate the factor-based score on this component for a given participant by simply adding together her responses to items 4, 5, and 6. Notice that, with a factor-based score, the observed variables are not multiplied by optimal weights before they are summed.
