COURSE: Advanced Structural Equation Models using Mplus
|Advanced Structural Equation Models using Mplus : A short course
The course is designed as a comprehensive coverage of applied SEM techniques using the Mplus statistical software package. The first part of the course is focused on using the Mplus program to specify and interpret common models in SEM such as path analytic models, confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) and mixture models, and full SEM models involving both continuous and ordinal (e.g., logistic regression models) dependent variables. The second part of the course introduces multi-group comparisons by initially testing measurement model invariance both cross-sectionally and longitudinally. More complex models including interaction effects for observed and latent constructs and longitudinal models are then presented. The third part of the course focuses on the conceptual and statistical underpinnings of multi-level modelling, including analysing longitudinal growth models, calculation of intra-class correlations and specifying and analysing multi-level models in Mplus.
This course in an advanced course and therefore it is essential that participants have a basic understanding of Structural Equation Modelling (SEM). In other words, participants must have completed an introductory course in structural equation modelling (SEM) using either Amos, Lisrel, EQS or Mplus. It is also assumed that participants have previous computer experience with statistical data analysis packages such as SPSS.
