Dimensions of the community-oriented programs environment scales (COPES): A hypothesis-testing factor analysis
Schwartz, S. A. (1981). Dimensions of the Community-Oriented Programs Environment Scales (COPES): A Hypothesis-Testing Factor Analysis. Multivariate Experimental Clinical Research, 5(2), 67-72.
In presenting his Community-Oriented Programs Environment Scale (COPES), Moos (1972) has suggested that the ten scales in the inventory may be conceptualized as measuring three broad dimensions; i.e., Relationship, Treatment Program, and Administrative Structure. To test this hypothesis, the scale intercorrelations for members of staff which Moos provided as normative data were separately analyzed using a Procrustes procedures.
