The software AMOS is used and you will develop skills in the use of AMOS, path diagram construction, analysis formats, output management and modelling practice. The course will then build on these concepts and skills to introduce the structural equation modelling.

Topics covered include:

  • Concepts and terminology

  • Model testing
  • Specification search
  • Multiple Group Factor Analysis
  • Constraining parameters
  • Dealing with rejection
  • Modification Indices
