Description

Structural Equation Modeling: Foundations and Applications to Developmental Research

This advanced training course is based on a presentation given by Dr. Todd Little at the Society for Research on Adolescence, Biennial Meeting, March 2006. The course focuses on understanding the concepts behind structural equation modeling for developmental data. Topics include defining a construct, using SEM with mean-level information, testing for invariance across time and groups, and comparing differences in latent construct across time and across groups.

Presenter:

Dr. Todd Little is Director of the Research Design and Analysis Unit at the University of Kansas. His research focuses on studying developmental change in how action-control processes influence school adjustment and achievement, peer relationships, reasons for aggression, and ability to cope with stress. Dr. Little provides graduate-level training in multivariate statistical techniques including structural equation modeling (e.g., LISREL) and growth curve modeling, and explores the use of SEM techniques as a general data analytic approach to studying individual, developmental, and sociocontextual differences.


Audience:

This advanced course is recommended for researchers and psychologists who have knowledge of multivariate statistics and structural equation modeling, and seek to gain a better understanding of how SEM applies to developmental research. (See Recommended Reading).
