PSYCHOLOGY 205C Section:
STRUCT EQUATION MODELING
Fall Quarter 2006
|Prerequisites:||Graduate standing or consent of instructor. See instructor for CRN.|
Course Description and Topics Covered: The course will provide a comprehensive introduction to the theory underlying structural equation modeling (SEM) as well as to the use of two standard programs (LISREL and Mplus) for conducting such analyses. Included among the topics will be confirmatory factor analysis, path analysis among measured variables, and latent variable structural modeling. As time permits, the class will include consideration of special topics, such as the analysis of multitrait-multimethod data, multiple group factor and structural models, and approaches to the analysis of longitudinal data. In addition, an introduction to other SEM programs, including EQS, AMOS, Mx, and RAMONA, will be presented.
Course Format: The course will be presented primarily in lecture format, with some time set aside for discussion of issues. In addition, some course time will be devoted to computer exercises using software appropriate for both classical test theory as well as item response theory approaches.
