Structural equation modeling (SEM) is a general statistical method that can be employed to test theoretically derived models. In this introductory short course, we cover the fundamental concepts and skills to conduct SEM using R/lavaan and Mplus. Specifically, we will use real data with a step-by-step implementation in R/lavaan and mplus:
1. to conduct confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) to evaluate measurement validity,
2. to conduct structural equation modeling with latent variables to test/confirm a theoretically derived model,
3. to understand statistical indices measuring goodness-of-fit of a model.
