This 5-day course will familiarize participants with Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) and will assist in using it in data analysis across the social sciences. Participants will also be able to cover the ideas and principles of SEM and the focus of the course will be the application of SEM models in order to address quantitative research questions. Data sets will be used and lab classes will use EQS software.

The five day short course will focus on the following areas:

Introduction to SEM
Confirmatory Factors Analysis
Model Fit and Model Specification
Structural Model
Mediation analysis using SEM
Multiple Group Models
The learning outcomes for participants are depicted subsequently:

Understand the principles of structural equation modelling (SEM)
Gain an in-depth understating of the model fit evaluation in SEM
Learn how SEM can be used for mediation and multiple group analysis
Familiarize on running and interpreting structural models
Participants should be familiar with basic statistics and should know how to run a correlation analysis, linear regression and t-test. No prior knowledge of Structural Equation Modelling software is necessary. The course is appropriate for doctoral students and academic researchers that use quantitative research methodologies.
