It is possible to score every case in the anlysis according to its values on the variables as they load on each of the rotated factors.

These weighted scores are called factor scores. They can be quite useful, depending on the research, and the values computer for each case can be saved as a separate file for input into other analyses.

Ordinarily, SPSS does not compute factor scores, and you can leave this menu untouched.
