Is it possible to use Monte Carlo procedures in MPlus to examine the power of a hypothesis with 2 df? Suppose I have parameters i, j and k, and I am interested in the power to test the hypothesis that i=j=k. In observed data, one would set them equal and examine the decrement in fit with 2df.
In the Monte Carlo module, you can look at the power of a 1 df test by defining
in the constraint block and looking at the distribution of new across replications. Is there a way to do it for the two df case?
