Abstract: FACTREL relates factors from two studies with the same variables using Kaiser, Hunka, and Bianchini's (1971) method. Both test and factor vectors for the two sets are placed in a common space, then one is rotated to maximize the sum of the row cross-products of loadings between the sets, with the resulting cosines between factor axes serving as the primary measures. Cosines between corresponding tests are also computed, as is their average. This method of relating factors is potentially useful in meta-analyti…
