SEM Series I: Graphical Models
September 28 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Modern Languages Building (MLB), Room 2001A
This workshop will help participants develop skills in understanding graphical models, and specifically from the perspective of structural equation modeling (SEM). After a general overview of concepts, regression approaches with observed variables will be demonstrated (path analysis), as well as mediation models in particular. Alternative approaches and non-SEM settings will also be discussed. Prerequisites: One should have a firm understanding of basic regression estimation techniques. R will be the program of choice, but nothing beyond very basic skill is assumed.
While this workshop can serve as a standalone session, the content is required knowledge for SEM III: Structural Equation Modeling.
