SUMMARY:LISA Statistics Short Course: Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) Using AMOS
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)
Using AMOS;\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. The correlation matrix of
a longitudinal study data of 932 persons over
the period from 1966 to 1971 with 6 measurements
will be used to illustrate the concepts
listed above.\n
\n
The first two hours of this
course covers the concepts of structural equation
modeling with an application to the data
set. The last hour of the course will be AMOS
lab session and basics of the power analysis
using R.\n
