Hm, but I also get factor loadings > 1 when specifying only one single factor. Never heard of ESEMs before, thanks!

Thanks. I'm cross validating two questionnaires and the > 1 loadings come from an established big five inventory. If loadings are akin to regression estimates, I suspect they might be able to amount to > 1 if the items are highly correlated?

Hi folks, What are potential causes for factor loadings > 1 in CFA with lavaan? I'm using standardized loadings (std.lv). Is this generally concerning? Thanks
4. ### Testing hypothesis of difference in factor loadings across multiple scales in two questionnaires

I'm unsure of how to test this hypothesis and would greatly appreciate your ideas: For illustrative purposes, let's assume that two groups of people (experts vs. novices) author a questionnaire with five scales (scale1 to scale5). Let's further assume that I have reason to hypothesize that when...
5. ### Comparing two dependent, non-overlapping correlations

I have two questions regarding the comparison of two correlation coefficients from a single (paired / dependent) sample: Is it legitimate to use a test for comparing independent correlation coefficients instead? My understanding is that the only drawback is that this would compromise power...
6. ### Suspicious about perfect fit in SEM (CFI = 1, RMSEA = 0)

I'm new to path analysis in SEM and suspicious about my model fit indices in R / lavaan: lavaan 0.6-6 ended normally after 27 iterations Estimator ML Optimization method NLMINB Number of free parameters...
7. ### GLM with multiple categorical predictors

I don't care about this intercept or what it represents, as long its not an intersection of factor levels, which would make it hard to interpret.
8. ### GLM with multiple categorical predictors

Hello internet, lets say I want to predict an outcome using multiple categorical predictors. Please consider the follow reproducible R-code: library(dplyr) library(psych) set.seed(42) n <- 500 df <- data.frame( loneliness = round(runif(n, 0, 1)), pet = factor(round(runif(n, 0, 1)))...
9. ### Confusion over the F-ratio in a hierarchical multiple regression

Hey all, I'm not used to work with multiple regression analysis, so I would be glad if anyone could help me interpreting this result: I performed a hierarchical multiple regression in SPSS (forced entry) in two Blocks to predict to variable SM: Block 1: Predictors: IQ, AGE Block 2...
10. ### Urgently need help with data analysis

Hey folks, i really am desperate for help with this, since I have to present my results at a conference in less than two weeks. I am a statistics-noob undergraduate psychoglogy-student, so please go easy on me. Research and Variables I want to examine the correlative relationship between a...
