Certificate Programme on Structural Equation Modeling Using AMOs

                    Certificate  Programme on Structural Equation Modeling Using AMOs

Structural equation modelling is one of the most useful and popular techniques for testing the measurement theory and
the structural relations among variables. It is a combination of factor analysis and regression analysis specifying the
observed variables and the unobserved/latent variables with their errors in measurement that are not observed in
many multivariate analyses. It is a family of techniques that covers factor analysis, path analysis, regression models,
and change analysis. SEM allows a researcher to test complex models with multiple pathways, model latent variables
with multiple indicators, investigate mediation and moderation in a systematic way and adjust for measurement error
in predictor variables. This workshop shall provide the participants a general introduction to SEM.
OBJECTIVES OF THE WORKSHOP
To provide the state-of-the-art knowledge in SEM.
To familiarize the participants with the usage of application-softwares.
To equip the teachers and researchers with the desired skills to handle complex research models using SEM
