Introduction to Structural Equation Modelling

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


Structural Equation Modelling is a powerful tool for testing and exploring causal relationships. This three-day training event will cover the following topics: Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) Covariance Based Structural Equation Modelling Measurement and structural component of a model The identification issue Estimation of the model: overview of estimation methods Estimation of the model: goodness-of-fit (Gof): Chi square statistic and Gof indices Interpreting the results Applied exercise: a simple TAM (1) Structural Equation Models (SEM) Adding a structural part of the model, what changes? Modification indices: uses and misuses Applied exercise: a simple TAM (2) Validation of the measurement model Reliability: Cronbach's alpha, Composite Reliability, Average Variance Extracted Convergence validity: loadings significance and sizes, Lagrange Multipliers Discriminant validity: Chi-square difference test, confidence interval test, AVE vs. correlations test Do-it-yourself exercise: the employee retention model
