Advanced topics in Structural Equation Modeling
Rex B. Kline
Professor, Department of Psychology, Concordia University
This intensive, graduate-level, three-day seminar deals with advanced topics in structural equation modeling (SEM). It assumes that participants have a working knowledge of basic SEM applications, including path analysis, confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), and the evaluation of structural-regression (full "LISREL" models) in single samples. Topics for this advanced workshop include power analysis, the simultaneous evaluation of a model across multiple samples, the analysis of models with mean structures, latent growth models, and estimation of curvilinear or interactive effects. The presentation of topics will be conceptually rather than mathematically oriented despite the advanced level of the course, and many research examples will be considered. Computer output for esearch examples generated by LISREL, Mplus, or EQS will be available.
