More and more researchers in the field of management and organizational research are using Structural Equations Modeling (SEM) to investigate their theories and test their data. Journal editors now require authors to test their hypotheses using SEM before their research can be considered publishable. If you want to use SEM but don’t know where to start, this workshop is for you. In this 3-hour workshop, you will learn how to analyze data using structural equation modeling with Mplus, a powerful and flexible software package for conducting structural Equations Modeling (SEM). The workshop will start with an introduction on how to use Mplus to perform Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA), Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) and basic structural models. Following the lecture, there will be time for you to practice with Mplus at the end of the workshop. No prior knowledge of Mplus is required. A basic knowledge of regression analysis and exploratory factor analysis are helpful, but not required. You will need to bring your own laptop to the workshop and download a copy of the trial version of Mplus at www.statmodel.com. The trial version is good for 30 days and will allow you to analyze data with a limited number of variables.
