Interpreting Probit Factor Loadings i... 

Message/Author 


Can one interpret probit coefficients (factor loadings) in CFA estimated in Mplus with the WLSMV estimator beyond noting sign and significance? Is there a way to convert the probit scaled coefficients to something more meaningful? The formula in the User's Guide in Chapter 14, section called "Calculating Probabilities from Probit Regression Coefficients" does not apply because the independent variable in CFA is latent. 


The same formula applies to latent variables. You can evaluate the probability at the mean and plus and minus one standard deviation from the mean for example.
