Abstract

It is shown that goodness-of-fit criteria developed for the evaluation of multivariate structural models can be applied to assist in evaluating the dimensionality of a test consisting of binary items, and correlative methods regularly employed in factor analysis can be used to diagnose causes of misfit.
