Introduction to Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) in R with lavaan
February 22, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Workshop will be conducted in Zoom in PST time. Invites are sent out the day before the workshop.
This workshop will introduce basic concepts of structural equation modeling (SEM) motivated by a hypothetical study on student achievement. The emphasis will be on understanding the output of lavaan and less on clinical interpretations or mathematical derivation. The matrix formulation and path diagram will be introduced for a path analysis, measurement and structural regression model. Concepts include identification, model fit, and modification indices. Suggested prerequisites: a review of the webpage Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) in R with lavaan (https://stats.idre.ucla.edu/r/seminars/rcfa), familiarity with linear regression and basic matrix notation.
