I just purchased Mplus and I am running an EFA study then a CFA study. Is there a guidebook (1 or 2 pages) on how to interpret all of the Mplus Output in one document, I did not see this in the 800-page user guide. Also, is there a paper out there which provides a one or two page discussion on how to interpret the fit indices/statistics for EFA/CFA.....I took a SEM course in my grad program back in 2006, and this is my first time getting back into this area. I remember from the lectures about all the different indices and how they sometimes told different stories... :-(
The basic interpretation of the output is given in the chapter on the OUTPUT command. See pages 715 to 720. For EFA, see the Topic 1 course handout and video on the website. Fit indices are also discussed in the Topic 1 course handout and video.
