Introduction to Structural Equation Modelling with Mplus
A course covering the fundamental structural equation modelling (SEM) concepts through lectures and hands-on data analysis.
Wednesday 19 – Thursday 20 February 2020
Professor Gordon Cheung
This course assumes that participants have a basic understanding of regression analysis. It does not assume prior experience with structural equation modelling or Mplus.
This two-day workshop provides:
- The basic concepts behind Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) and the assumptions involved,
- Comparison of regression and path analysis
- Introduction of confirmatory factor analysis with measurement model for testing content validity and discriminant validity
- Application of full structural model with latent variables. Hands-on data analysis with examples will be provided
At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to:
- Understand the conceptual and statistical assumptions underlying SEM
- Write Mplus syntax for measurement model, path model and structural model with latent variables
- Interpret results in published articles that use SEM
This is part of a suite of workshops on using Mplus.
