Abstract:

A series of factor analyses were performed to extract organizational factors from data collected N4786 on Air Force personnel using the Organizational Assessment Package OAP. The 22 factors extracted were orthogonally rotated and then each rotated factor had its internal consistency computed using the Cronbach Alpha technique. In order to reduce the number of items within the OAP, a factor score estimation methodology was developed. This included computing factor coefficients for use in deriving factor scores. Then a sub-set of items for each factor was regressed against factor scores as a means of factor score estimation. Factors, factor score coefficients, and factor score estimation results are presented. Author
