Factor Analysis of FIM Residuals

by John M. Linacre
MESA Research Note 5, October 1997

BIGSTEPS provides a principal components factor analysis of Rasch standardized residuals. This is produced as part of Table 10 when PRCOMP=Y is specified.

Analysis of FIMSM residuals shows the same findings as the published "Admit-Discharge" analysis revealed:
1. The Residual structure contrasts the 5 cognitive items against the 13 motor items.
2. The Bowel and Bladder items contain a secondary dimension along with their motor dimension.
