FDP ON STRUCTURAL EQUATION MODELING 2015
August 29, 2015 - August 30, 2015
The trend in research studies is moving from bivariate analysis to multivariate analysis in recent past. Various multivariate techniques examine single relationship at a time however to deal with complex causal relationship structural equation modeling is a useful technique.
Structural equation modeling is one of the most useful and popular technique for testing the measurement theory and the structural relations among variables. It is a combination of factor analysis and regression analysis, specifying the observed variables and the unobserved/latent variables with their errors in measurement that are not observed in many multivariate analyses. It is a family of techniques that covers factor analysis, path analysis, regression models, and change analysis.
- To provide the state-of-the-art knowledge in SEM.
- To familiarize the participants with the usage of application-softwares.
- To equip the teachers and researchers with the desired skills to handle complex research models using SEM
Participants should be familiar with SPSS.
The pedagogy would include lectures, discussion, demonstration, and hands-on-experience using computers. The participants are required to carry their laptops to practice.
Boarding and Lodging
Arrangements will be made in for accommodation (twin sharing) in case of residential participant.
The participants will be provided with certificates on successful completion of the programme.
