ABSTRACT

Part 1 discussed multiple regression as a research tool. Part 2 has been concerned with the “And Beyond” portion of the title of the book and has focused on path analysis, confirma-tory factor analysis, structural equation modelling, and latent growth modeling. For SEM, we went from basic models to those with means, multiple groups, interaction terms, and multiple levels. This final chapter will begin with a review and summary of Part 2. I will then briefly discuss several topics about which you should be aware but have not yet been covered in this text.
