Outline / Features of SEM AMOS

AMOS (Analysis of Moments Structures) software enables
researchers to analyze the inter-relationships among constructs having multiple indicators in a model. Using AMOS graphic, the analysis is executed effectively, accurately, and efficiently. More importantly, the inter-relationships in a model are estimated simultaneously.

Expected Outcomes (Benefits from the workshop)

The workshop will expose participants with the application of Structural Equation Modeling or SEM, the Second Generation Statistical Method. SEM is widely used by researchers to analyze the inter-relationships among constructs in a model. Upon understanding the concept of SEM, the participants will enjoy the hands-on guides on how to execute SEM using AMOS software, and also how to interpret the results. This AMOS Workshop would enable participants to analyze their measurement model and structural model, as well as for the following analysis:

» Analyzing the causal effects
» Analyzing the correlational effects
» Analyzing the Mediating/Intervening effects
» Analyzing the Moderating effects
Advantages this workshop compared to others
Have the speaker which is the expert in this field (SEM/AMOS) since 2004
Held in the small group, not more than 50 people
Does not refer to the material course only, but also has the discussion in the context of research done by the participant
Getting the relationship with the speaker for the future time
In two day’s workshop, really exposed you step by step and hands-on guides on how to execute SEM using AMOS software
The Workshop Consists of Two Levels
> Level 1 for Beginners and Intermediate (2 days)
> Level 2 for Intermediate and Advanced (2 days)
Who should join this workshop?

» Academicians
» Researchers
» Scholars
» Consultants
» Postgraduate students
» Those who require SEM for their data analysis

What you get in the workshop?

» Softcopy Note and software SEM?AMOS from Speaker
» Softcopy Certificate
» Meal & Refreshments
