Hi
Due to what concert promoters would term 'phenomenal public demand' but in reality is a small degree of oversubscription, Figure It Out, the statistical consultancy unit at the Institute of Work Psychology, University of Sheffield, is running an extra date for its "Introduction to Structural Equation Modelling using MPlus" course, on Wednesday 16th December. The majority of the 10 places are already reserved by those who missed out on previous courses but we have a couple spare.

The standard rate for the course is £275, the student rate is £200. 

Details of the course are given below: for further information and to book a place, go to http://www.offbeat.group.shef.ac.uk/FIO/trainingcourses.htm
The contact for booking enquiries is Charlotte McClelland: [log in to unmask]

This courses, plus further courses on Data management using the SPSS syntax language, Multiple Regression, Multilevel Modelling, and Questionnaire Scale Construction and Validation, are also available on an inhouse basis: see http://www.offbeat.group.shef.ac.uk/FIO/bespoketraining.htm

cheers
Chris



******* Course details are as follows: *******

-|- Introduction to Structural Equation Modelling using MPlus -|-


*** EXTRA DATE: Wednesday 16th December ***
-|- 9.45am to 5.15pm, at IWP, University of Sheffield -|-


-|- Who is the course aimed at?
This course is aimed at two distinct groups; those seeking a beginners' course in Path Analysis techniques such as Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) and Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA); and those with some previous experience of Structural Equation Modelling who wish to learn to use the powerful and elegant MPlus software, which can be employed in an incredibly wide range of model fitting scenarios.


-|- Course level:
A basic knowledge of Exploratory Factor Analysis and the ideas behind multiple regression analysis will be advantageous to participants. No previous knowledge or experience with SEM or Mplus is assumed


-|- Course content and aims:
The course will cover the following topics:
- Introduction to Path Analysis - what is it and why do we need it?
- Assessing the fit of a Structural Equation Model
- Comparing competing Structural Equation Models
- Preparing and importing data into Mplus from SPSS
- Getting started with analysis in MPlus - the basics of the language
- Fitting a simple Confirmatory Factor Analysis in Mplus
- Fitting a simple Structural Equation Model in Mplus
- Testing for indirect effects in Structural Equation Models
- Fitting Structural Equation Models with missing data
- Including Categorical variables in Structural Equation Models
- Multiple group analysis


-|- Course Format:
The course comprises of a mixture of short lectures on the basic theory behind Structural Equation Models, teaching via examples worked through by the trainer on real data sets which participants can follow, and exercises to practice the skills just learned. You will also receive a 70-page coursebook containing all the notes and worked examples, providing an easy reference for the basics of performing SEM in MPLus, and as a reminder for the techniques you have learned.


-|- Course schedule:
The course will start at 9.45am, with a lunch break from 1pm-2pm, and short coffee breaks at 11.30am and 3.30pm. It will finish at around 5pm, though I will be willing to stay on for a while after this to answer questions pertinent to participants' own data sets or any other Structural Equation Modelling queries you may have.
