bifactorIndicesMplus_expl {BifactorIndicesCalculator}R Documentation



Computes all available bifactor indices given an Mplus .out file for a bifactor EFA


  Lambda = file.choose(),
  ItemsBySF = NULL,
  LoadMin = 0.2



is an Mplus .out file. Defaults to an open file dialog box


is a list, indexed by factor, of vectors of item names belonging to each factor. You must include the general factor in this list, and the list must have names which match the factor names in Mplus. Defaults to NULL, in which case composition of specific factors in automated by comparing loadings to LoadMin


is the minimum loading size so that an item is considered to "belong" to a factor. If ItemsBySF is not provided, then items are assigned to factors based on whether their loading on that factor is greater than LoadMin. If ItemsBySF is provided, then warnings are issued whenever items load above LoadMin on factors to which they do not belong, or do not load above LoadMin on factors to which they do belong,


To use this function, simply call it without any arguments and a dialog box will pop up for you to select a .out file of an exploratory bifactor model.

EFA models are not currently (3/3/2020) supported by MplsuAutomation::ReadModels(), but they will be in the very near future, at which time this function will be completed.


A list of bifactor indices, including three different ECV indices, Omega, and OmegaH.
