Abstract

The course is intended to give an introduction to the foundational concepts and basic computational techniques of structural equation modeling (SEM) and their implementation in a popular SEM software tool, R package lavaan. The topics covered by the course are exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis (E/CFA), path models, and structural equation models. In addition, practical issues of estimation, visualization and presentation of various types of SEM models are discussed. To succeed in this course, students are assumed to have basic knowledge of statistics and be familiar with several conventional statistical methods, most importantly regression analysis. In addition, for practical exercises we will use R programming environment, so another major prerequisite is a basic knowledge of R.
