Description
This introductory workshop presents a nonmathematical introduction to the underlying rationale and basic concepts associated with structural equation modeling (SEM). Participants are shown how to: (a) decompose basic models into linear structural equations that describe hypothesized structures; (b) evaluate model "fit" to the data; and (c) determine the need for, and assess findings from post hoc model-fitting. A basic knowledge of multiple regression is recommended, and some knowledge of factor analysis may be helpful.
Learning Objectives
1. Utilize structural equation modeling to test for the validity of hypothesized factorial and path analytic structures.
2. Model, schematically, hypothesized factorial and path analytic structures.
3. Transform components of a specified model into linear structural equations.
4. Evaluate the goodness-of-fit between a hypothesized model and the sample data.
