An interesting paper. Of course to go one step simpler and use the ANACOR
procedure would be identical (I hope) with the Feixas & Cornejo GRIDCOR
program. One thing I have found useful when considering the data as ordinal
is to use the monotone regression estimates (QUANTIFICATION) as an indicator
of the range of convenience of a construct.

Peter Caputi (University of Wollongong) gave a paper at the Australian
Psychological Society Conference in 1994 comparing PRINCALS (actually the
SAS equivalent) with traditional principal component solutions for a grid
