SUMMARY:LISA Statistics Short Course: Linear Regression and Structural Equation Models (SEM)
DESCRIPTION:
LISA SHORT COURSES IN STATISTICS\n
LISA (Laboratory
for Interdisciplinary Statistical Analysis)
is providing a series of evening short courses
to help graduate students use statistics
in their research. The focus of these two-hour
courses is on teaching practical statistical
techniques for analyzing or collecting data.

Title: Linear Regression
and Structural Equation Models (SEM);\n
Course
Information:\n
This course consists of
two sections:\n
\n
Section 1 demonstrates linear
regression to model the linear relationship
between a response and predictor(s) when both
the response and predictors are continuous
variables. We will cover the computation of
the regression equation and the analysis of
variance table. We will also discuss S, R-Sq,
R-Sq (adj), predicted values, confidence intervals,
prediction intervals, and how to check
for unusual observations and assumptions.\n
\n
Section 2 introduces Structural Equation Modeling
(SEM). We will cover time-related latent
variables, the use of modification indices
and critical ratio in exploratory analyses,
and computation of implied moments, factor score
weights, total effects, and indirect effects.\n
\n
This
course will also be taught on 6/29/11.\n
