SEM documentation

edited July 2016 in JASP & BayesFactor

I got very excited about the SEM module in JASP. However, I was unable to find any documentation on it, so could you give some hints as to how a model needs to be defined in order to run? I tried using the syntax of the lavaan package in R but it doesn't entirely work (or I'm doing it wrong...). Thanks a bunch in advance!

    Hi Jana,

    Thank you for your enthusiasm! We are working on the help page, which I hope to have in a coming release. The SEM module indeed uses lavaan in the background. You can type the Lavaan syntax in the syntax window and press command-enter (on Mac, might be control-enter on Windows) to run the analysis.

    Thank you Sacha! I'll fiddle around with it a bit and see how it goes! :)
