Does anyone happen to know if the "par. change" values provided in amos are standardized estimated parameter change values (the Chou and Bentler 1990 SEPCs, not the Kaplan 1989 ones)? The documentation is ambiguous regarding whether those are standardized or unstandardized values.

If they are unstandardized, is there a simple way to standardize them?

I believe lisrel outputs SEPC values; does mplus?

Thanks!

Mplus outputs both raw and standardized EPC values.

Thanks!

...incidentally, should it come up again, the amos par change values ARE unstandardized... I couldn't find it in the documentation anywhere, so I just deleted a path I knew had an unstandardized value > 1, reran the model, and looked at the par change for the path I deleted-- > 1.
