The Assessment will take the form of a project on using LISREL to estimate and evaluate structural equation models. Full details will be given in the last session.
The required text for the course is:
Diamantopoulos, A. and Siguaw, J.A. (2000): Introducing LISREL, Sage Publications
Student should also read the relevant chapters on SEM in:
Hair, J. F., Black, W. C., Babin, B. J. and Anderson, R. E. (2010): Multivariate Data Analysis, 7th edition, Pearson (ISBN 978-0-13-515309-3).
