Workshop Date 11th -12th March 2020

Partial Least Squares Structural Equation Modeling (PLS-SEM) has become increasingly popular for analyzing data in the social sciences. Applications of PLS-SEM have grown exponentially through the fundamentals of using SmartPLS 3 for typical data analysis processes. The workshop is designed for novice researchers and its emphasis is on learning the basics of SEM in SmartPLS 3, drawing path models in the software, performing confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), evaluation of reflective and formative measurement models, evaluation of the structural model, mediation and moderation analysis, and multi group analysis.
