compact 1-day workshop on using Mplus to get you started. We will focus on how to get the syntax running; how to avoid common mistakes; how to interpret the output file and how to deal with error messages.

Please note that we only discuss a very basic regression model and confirmatory factor analysis. This 1-day workshop is not about analyzing complex models: The main goal is to get you started!
 
This course will take place in April. The exact date will be announced later.


If you expect to work with the software Mplus, this course can help you to get started!  
The workshop starts with a short recap on structural equation modeling. Then, we will discuss how to import data into Mplus, and how to specify a model using Mplus syntax. Participants are familiarized with the important parts of the input and output files. Also, we will discuss model fit indices, how to avoid common mistakes, and how to deal with error messages.
Please note that we only discuss very simple models: a basic regression model and a confirmatory factor analysis. If you’re interested in more complex models (e.g. latent class analysis, multilevel models, latent growth models), please take a look at our Mplus summer school courses (see Recommended Combinations below). This one-day workshop is not about analyzing complex models: The main goal is to get you started.
