Training in Applied Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) using AMOS/R

Lecture 1 from our Online SEM Training Series About SEM:- Structural Equation Modeling is a powerful multivariate data analysis technique that is widely used in many areas of research. It allows both confirmatory and exploratory modeling, meaning SEM is suited for both theory testing and theory development. Factor analysis, path analysis and regression all represent special cases of SEM. Structural Equation Modeling finds wide-spread application in all the major fields […]
