    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...

    [LISREL 8.7] syntax for a formative second order model

    Hi: I am developing a scale, which is theoretically a first order reflective, and second order formative model. I have already analyzed the first order model and everything's ok, and results indicate that i should continue with a second order formative model. I do not know how to write the...

    Non-positive definite matrix and second order confirmatory factor analysis

    For my research I'm using SEM to model the relation between a couple of variables. All scales have been used in a 7 point likert format and most have been validated before in other research. In my dataset however, I have my doubts whether some these scales are truly measuring different concepts...
