Published on

This workshop covers the principles and issues of Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) and its practical applications. The two-day workshop covers the purpose of SEM, Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA), path analysis and multi-group analysis. The participants will learn how to conceptualize models of theoretical interest, recognize identification of problems, perform model estimation and modification using AMOS software and choose the final model for establishing direct and indirect relationship among the study variables. The participants are expected to bring Laptop and upload AMOS version 18 (if possible).

  2. 2. INTRODUCTION This workshop covers the principles and issues of Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) and its practical applications. The two-day workshop covers the purpose of SEM, Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA), path analysis, and multi-group analysis. The participants will learn how to conceptualize models of theoretical interest, recognize identification of problems, perform model estimation and modification using AMOS software, and choose the final model for establishing direct and indirect relationship among the study variables. WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES Knowledge of (a) Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) of covariance and mean structures of research data; (b) how to apply SEM to real data sets with one of the available computer software; (c) how to read, understand, and interpret scientific articles in which SEM has been applied and (d) how to report SEM analyses and SEM results in scientific journal articles. WORKSHOP INSTRUCTOR ASSOC. PROF. DR. KRISHNASWAMY JAYARAMAN He as 29 years of experience as a professor in Statistics. He has a wide range of experience in data analysis using Statistical Software and carried out some major projects for National and International organizations. He is well versed in Statistical analysis particularly in Model Building, Estimation of parameters, Forecasting and predictive Inferences, categorical data analysis and Follow-up studies. He has produced 13 Ph.D., research scholars in analytical and applied statistics on an interdisciplinary basis and published more than 50 journal articles in International and National Journals. He has been providing an extensive training for the executives of IT; Banking; BPO & KPO call centres; Manufacturing Industries for six-sigma Green Belt and Black Belt courses on Total Quality Management. He has also been an active member of the quality planning and assurance teams and worked with clients like WHO, e-Merk, Ford, Motorola, Airtel, Lason, Careers India, Prumatec, Astron, Office Tiger and Cadensworth (Intel) among other multinational companies.
