This is an introductory, applied course on Structural Equation Models (SEM). The course aims to provide students basic understanding of SEM, the underlying theory and its applications in psychology. It includes practical work with computer software (Mplus) and real data. Introduction to structural equation modeling: basic concepts and principles; the use of path diagrams; mathematical equations; model specification; model fit. Students will use the Mplus software to fit confirmatory factor analysis, path analysis with observed variables, and full structural equation models.
