Dear Chairs

Please circulate this announcement to your students and faculty.  I believe this will be of interest to any researchers who have used multiple regression.

This is a reminder regarding the CRMDA Workshop below scheduled for this *Saturday, October 21 from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. in the Watson Library, room 455*. To sign-up to attend, please email *crmda at ku.edu
<mailto:crmda at ku.edu>* by this Thursday, October 19.

*Title of Workshop: *Using R and Lavaan for Structural Equation Models (SEM)

*Presenters:* Chong Xing and Meghan Sullivan, CRMDA

*Date:* Saturday, October 21, 2017

*Time:* 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

*Location:* Watson Library, Room 455
1425 Jayhawk Boulevard, Lawrence, KS 66045

*Workshop Description*:


This seminar will extend the R methods for regression analysis to Structural Equation Models (SEM). We will introduce model syntax, with examples of how to run a path analysis, confirmatory factor analysis, and latent regression models, as well as how to extract various kinds of output. Advanced topics include comparing nested models, using equality constraints across multiple groups or repeated measures, how to handle categorical indicators, and how to run models when data are missing.

These topics will be addressed through hands-on activities with example data sets and R code templates that you can take and re-use for your future projects. Additionally, time will be available during breaks and for a short period after the seminar for individual consultations.


If you have any questions about signing up, please contact Auburn Packer <crmda at ku.edu>.
