Validating all measures using confirmatory factor
- Critical reviews advance a field through new theory, new methods, a novel synthesis of extant evidence, or a combination of two or three of these elements.Reviews that identify new research questions and that make links between management and organizations and the wider social sciences are particularly welcome.2) Or there are some types of validity that can be tested with EFA and some that - with CFA? The survey was constructed to measure 6 different constructs, each construct consist of different number of items (questions).3) What is the best solution - which one should be used or both? I am writing a theoretical review of statistical methods that would be used to analyse the survey data.However, CFA is more informative about sources of misfit and potential methods effects.This includes cases of items with very similar wording, or reverse items.They are more controversial than conventional papers or reviews, and can be shorter.They argue a point of view, but must meet standards of academic rigour.
