Structural Equation Modeling

Course description:

This course will cover an in depth exploration of structural equation modeling.  You will learn the basic concepts of SEM and how to model different types of research questions, as well as how to report these models in APA style.  Path analysis, confirmatory factor analysis, and multi-group models will be several types of techniques covered.
