The MacQuarrie test for mechanical ability

  • Robert L. Chapman


Data originally analyzed by Charles H. Goodman on the MacQuarrie Test for Mechanical Ability are subjected to the principal axes factoring method. The maximum variance was extracted with three factors. Rotation to an oblique simple structure yielded a factor pattern which satisfies the simple structure concept more adequately than the orthogonal factor matrix, thus leading to greater clarity of interpretation of the factors.
