Factor loadings for each of the 19 TBAC-E subtests. Subtests are grouped according to the factor on which they have the highest loading and ordered within each factor according to the magnitude of the primary loading on that factor.
Five models of auditory abilities. Model 1 represents a single general auditory ability accounting for performance on all tasks. Model 2 represents four independent auditory abilities associated with specific subsets of tasks (based on the principal components analysis) and no general ability. Model 3 includes a general ability and four independent abilities. Model 4 is a version of model 2 that allows correlations among the four auditory abilities. Model 5 is a version of model 3 that allows correlations among the four auditory abilities.
Factor loadings for the latent variables in model 3. This shows the degree to which performance on each subtest is influenced by the general auditory ability (gray bars) and the specific auditory ability (black bars) with which it is associated in the model. Each section of the figure shows the loadings for a different specific factor.
