I ran a conditional model using the following Mplus input file:

TITLE: Conditional Model;
DATA: FILE IS DATA.txt;
TYPE IS MEANS COVARIANCE;
NOBSERVATIONS = 4719;
VARIABLE: NAMES ARE MATH1 MATH2 MATH3 SES SELFCON;
ANALYSIS: TYPE = MEANSTRUCTURE;
MODEL: I S| MATH1@0 MATH2 MATH3@1;
I ON SES SELFCON;
S ON SES SELFCON;
MATH1-MATH3(1);
OUTPUT: SAMPSTAT TECH4 RESIDUAL;

I got the path coefficients to be:

I ON
SES 7.259 0.193 37.572 0.000
SELFCON 1.044 0.206 5.075 0.000

S ON
SES 1.712 0.138 12.392 0.000
SELFCON 0.593 0.147 4.030 0.000

These estimates should be between 0 and 1; do you have an idea of what I might be doing wrong and how i can fix that?
Thank you!!!

These are raw coefficients not standardized.
