IBM SPSS - Advanced: Structural Equation Modelling using AMOS
This hands-on computer workshop is an introduction to structural equation modelling (SEM) using Amos software. Structural equation modelling is a family of statistical techniques aimed to build and test more complex statistical models. It can be used as a more powerful and general alternative to multiple regression, path analysis and factor analysis (which in fact can be seen as special cases of SEM).
This course is under great demand. If your circumstances change and you cannot attend, please cancel your enrolment as quickly as possible.
