ISSR Workshop: Getting Started with Structural Equation Modeling
October 8, 2013
2:00 pm-4:00 pm
UMass Amherst Campus
Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) enables researchers to conduct analyses for testing a priori models, such as confirmatory factor analysis and mediation analysis. Designed for individuals without prior experience with SEM, this workshop will give a preview about SEM as a statistical technique for data analysis. We will discuss what SEM is, its characteristics, and what it is useful for (and what it is not useful for). This workshop will also introduce participants to the basics of interpreting an SEM report.
