Congratulations to Alberto Maydeu-Olivares on receiving a grant award from the National Science Foundation, “Standardized Goodness of Fit Assessment and Power Computations in Structural Equations Models”

Congratulations to Alberto Maydeu-Olivares on receiving a grant award from the National Science Foundation, “Standardized Goodness of Fit Assessment and Power Computations in Structural Equations Models” ($350,000). This research project will develop new statistical methods with better statistical properties for structural equation models (SEM). The generality of the structural equation modeling approach makes it one of the most widely used data-modeling techniques across the social and behavioral sciences. However, some of the common practices associated with SEMs are considered problematic. This project will develop goodness-of-fit methods for structural equation models.
