SUMMARY:LISA Statistics Short Course:Structural Equation Modeling (SEM)
DESCRIPTION:
LISA SHORT COURSES IN STATISTICS\n
LISA (Virginia
Tech's 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. See www.lisa.stat.vt.edu/?q=short_courses
for instructions on how to
REGISTER and to learn more.\n

Title:
Structural Equation Modeling (SEM);\n
Course
Information:\n
Structural equation modeling
(SEM) encompasses such diverse statistical
techniques as path analysis, confirmatory
factor analysis, causal modeling with latent
variables, and even analysis of variance and
multiple linear regression models. This short
course features an introduction to the logic
of SEM, the assumptions and required input
for SEM analysis, and how to perform SEM analyses
using the AMOS (Analysis of Moment Structures)
software. We also will cover time-related
latent variables, the use of modification
indices and critical ratio in exploratory
analyses, computation of implied moments, factor
score weights, total effects, and indirect
effects. \n
