Introduction to Structural Equation Modeling

Wednesday, May 23, 2012 at 9:00am to 12:30pm

Welcome Center, 103 2400 N Sheffield Ave

This is a 2.5-day workshop, offered by Dr. Gregory R. Hancock from the University of Maryland. This workshop assumes no prior experience with structural equation modeling (SEM), and is intended as both a theoretical and practical introduction. An understanding of SEM will be developed by relating it to participants’ previous knowledge of multiple linear regression, and then by expanding it to allow for correlated and causally related latent constructs. We will start with path analysis among measured variables, move into confirmatory factor models, then structural models involving latent causality, and finally into an overview of more advanced topics. Examples will be accompanied by input and output using the SIMPLIS/LISREL software package. Throughout the course participants will be able to do practice exercises using SIMPLIS/LISREL; participants are strongly encouraged to bring their own laptop PCs to do these exercises.
