Hello, I am running SEM for multi-group comparison.
I have three latent variables, which A,B,and C. In the latent variable C, items are forced choice. In the model, D is a manifest variable with 5 math plausible values. So, the SEM model is A->B->C->D.
I want to compare the model with 11 countries.Could you please let me know how to use my SEM model to compare 10 countries ?Because I want to know if there is any differences between countries? Also, because of five plausible values, should I run five times for the model? or there is any way to deal with five plausible values?

In my model, I have the forced-choice item and I transformed the data to the binary data based on Brow & Maydeu-Olivares's paper (2012). Then, I have to do measurement invariance on the this item. Is it possible to do measurement invariance on the forced-choice item ?
