Overview of the Course. 


SEM is a multivariate technique used to analyze hypothesized relationship specified on theoretical or empirical evidences, and transformed into path diagrams  SEM’s graphical features not only allow for the analyses of latent factors just like in the regression analysis but also permit modification of theoretical models to capture varying interrelationships. SEM provides relative versatility when compared to other multivariate techniques as it allows for simultaneously interdependent relationship between variables. In addition to capturing stochastic error term both at the individual indicator and latent construct levels, SEM is also capable of numerous analyses on various data types and estimation techniques.


Topics to be covered:

General introduction to SEM

Data cleaning

Testing multivariate assumptions

Exploratory factor analyses

Confirmatory factor analysis / Measurement model

Assessing model fit

Testing for validity and reliability

Measurement invariance analyses: Metric and Configural

Second order CFA

Common Method Bias

Full-fledged structural model

Structural model invariance / testing moderating effect

Testing for mediation

User-defined estimands

Latent growth curve modeling

Introduction to Bayesian SEM

Ordered categorical data analysis



This course is limited to 30 participants only and the online registration is open from 18th March 2014 until 14th April 2014
