This course gives a hands on introduction to what is possible in a latent variable analysis framework using Mplus. Building up the different sides of latent variable modelling and structural equation modeling step by step, eight different types of analysis are tackled.
Regression, Path Analysis, Confirmatory Factor Analysis, Item Response Theory, Measurement modelling, Latent Class Analysis, Longitudinal Analysis and lastly, hybrids of these are all topics of the course covered in lectures and practical analysis in Mplus.
Bringing your own data and research questions is highly recommended!
Distinguish and understand different types of latent variable analysis;
Learn how to do basic and advanced structural equation modelling;
Understand how to combine different techniques in one model; and
Learn how to use Mplus
