Hello,

I'm a graduate student who has recently started using Jamovi. Not sure if this is an issue anyone else has noticed, but I've found that when I run an exploratory factor analysis using factors based on eignenvalues of 1+ ("Based on eigenvalue"), I get different results from what I found in both R and SPSS. To further test this, I ran the EFA through the Rj editor, which ended up matching the R/SPSS outputs, which leads me to guess that there might be an issue with this specific "point and click" analysis in Jamovi, as all Rj/R/SPSS outputs matched up. Otherwise, when I decide factors for the EFA based on parallel analysis or a fixed number, the results match SPSS and R, so this issue seems to be specific to when I choose the "Based on eigenvalue" option in the EFA window.

As I'm rather new to using Jamovi, it's possible I made a mistake, but I wanted to post on here to see if anyone else was running across this problem?
