    [MPlus] Using the Alignment Method with non-invariant factors

    I am attempting to use the Alignment within CFA method from Marsh et al. (2017) on 2015 PISA. However, six out of nine factors have more than 25% non-invariance What can be done to a dataset that is found to be mostly non-invariant using the alignment method? Does this mean than the 6 factors...

    Testing scalar invariance of a second-order factor model in LISREL

    I have a non-normal data for which I used satorra-bentler chi square. The problem I am facing is in testing the measurement invariance of a second-order factor model in lisrel. Unfortunately, the lisrel tutorial only shows examples of first order factor models and there is hardly any mention of...

    LISREL-SIMPLIS 2nd Order MultiGroup Measurement invariance Testing

    Hi Hi. I am using LISREL 8.8 (Simplis Commands) I am stuck in doing 2nd order Multigroup measurement Invariance - specifically i cannot get through the stage for equal intercepts (strong invariance/Measurement intercepts) I kept having errors and model does not converge. Hope some one...

    Longitudinal Analyses with questionnaire with varying items per wave

    Hi all, For my thesis I am conducting a longitudinal analyses (5 waves) on antisocial behavior measured with the ASBQ. Now I have a different amount of items per wave, because they included items that were more age appropriate per wave. This results in: T1 (31 items), T2 (26 items), T3 (28...

    [LISREL SIMPLIS] help with scalar invariance and calculating latent mean factors

    Hello, I am conducting measurement equivalence on a two country sample (US and IN). I have established configural (baseline) and metric equivalence. However scalar invariance has not been established (the model change checks out but CFI change is less than .002). I examined the modification...
