This webinar will introduce confirmatory factor analysis, a statistical method used to test how well observed variables represent theoretical constructs of interest. This set of statistical procedures is regularly leveraged to understand the structure of instruments (e.g., questionnaires to identify depression). During this webinar, attendees will learn about how to define confirmatory constructs, develop a measurement model, and assess the resulting model.

Overall, attendees will leave this webinar with the ability to: 

  • Explain the fundamentals of confirmatory factor analysis
  • Describe the common uses of confirmatory factor analysis 
  • Perform a confirmatory factor analysis
  • Interpret the results of a confirmatory factor analysis

Approved for 1.5 hours of CFLE continuing education credit.
