The course starts with an overview of what Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) is and how it relates to regression techniques and factor analysis. 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 identification
  • Model testing
  • Specification search
  • Multiple Group Factor Analysis
  • Constraining parameters
  • Dealing with rejection
  • Modification Indices

The course provides a one day overview of SEM concepts and in the use of AMOS. The course does contain a lot of content and requires you to have some working knowledge of regression techniques and factor analysis to get the most out of the day.
