Abstract

In this paper we show how exploratory factor analysis using R can be used as educational language and research tool. Despite the use of exploratory factor analysis in research, researchers make questionable decisions when conducting analysis. This article provides some practical usage patterns and insights as to how analysis can be conducted using R. R can ease the data analysis work and also it can handle complex data. Survey data of students set is used to illustrate factor analysis with R.

Keywords: Factor analysis, pedagogy, R, statistics, Survey analysis.
