LIVE STREAM – 4-day Statistics Short Course
An introductory 4-day seminar covering SEM with a focus on the statistical software R.
- Confirmatory Factor Analysis
- Multiple group models
- Structural models
- Mediation and moderation with latent variables
- Longitudinal models
This seminar is designed to introduce the theoretical and applied understandings of latent variable models also called SEM. Topics covered include confirmatory factor analysis models, multiple group models, mediation, moderation, and longitudinal models. Using real datasets provided in the seminar, participants will learn how to use the lavaan package in the R software program to analyze data and interpret results. Participants from a variety of fields, including sociology, psychology, education, human development, marketing, business, biology, medicine, political science, and communication, will benefit from the seminar.
Participants will receive an electronic copy of all course materials, including lecture slides, practice datasets, software scripts, relevant supporting documentation, and recommended readings. Participants will also have access to a video recording of the course.
