I am estimating a model with all observed variables (nothing latent), but my dependent variables, along with one of the independent variables, have known reliabilities, which I would like to adjust the parameters for in the analysis. How can I do that?
Thanks, Linda. I have looked at the slide but am concerned that I am misunderstanding something. My goal is to adjust the regression coefficients for the reliability of the variables, but what I have done has not changed the coefficients at all, just forced the residual variances to be equal to the values that I calculated.
From Slide 44, I used the syntax y@a, where a = (1-reliability)*sample variance. So, for example, the variable fallpair has a reliability of 0.81 and a sample variance of 0.896, so I calculated (1-0.81)*0.896=0.17024. A sample of my model syntax is below. Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong? Also, why do I no longer get chi-square and RMSEA values when I do this reliability adjustment?
