Structural Equation Modeling with lavaan

Workshop Title: Structural Equation Modeling with lavaan

(Tuesday afternoon)

This half-day workshop will provide both a refresher of SEM concepts and 
practices, and a tutorial on how to use the open-source R package lavaan 
for SEM. After a brief general introduction to SEM, several specific 
topics will be discussed: mean structures and multiple groups, 
measurement invariance, dealing with missing data and non-normal data, 
CFA with binary and ordinal data, and the connection with item response 
theory (IRT). The workshop will be based on lecture-style presentations 
interchanged with practical sessions.
