Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) is a general framework for statistical analysis. What distinguishes SEM is that it allows for multiple equations that include latent variables measured with multiple indicators. This allows the researcher to adjust for measurement error and examine the properties of instruments, while simultaneously estimating structural relationships among variables, including direct and indirect effects. This course will provide an intensive introduction to the fundamentals of SEM, as well as several intermediate and advanced topics. Participants will receive guidance on how to implement SEM in widely used software packages.

Starting December 15, we are offering this seminar as a 3-day synchronous*, livestream workshop held via the free video-conferencing software Zoom. Each day will consist of two lecture sessions which include hands-on exercises, separated by a 1-hour break. You are encouraged to join the lecture live, but will have the opportunity to view the recorded session later in the day if you are unable to attend at the scheduled time.

*We understand that finding time to participate in livestream courses can be difficult. If you prefer, you may take all or part of the course asynchronously. The video recordings will be made available within 24 hours of each session and will be accessible for four weeks after the seminar, meaning that you will get all of the class content and discussions even if you cannot participate synchronously. 

Closed captioning is available for all live and recorded sessions.
