Hi,

Two questions.
1. Can I use, is it common, or do people use Bayes Factors for comparing nested BSEM models. For example, longitudinal invariance models. If so I assume I can use the BF > 3 criteria that gets floated around.

2. I am using the BIC approximation of Bayes Factor. Using:

Exp(-.05*BIC_H1)
----------------------
Exp(-.05*BIC_H0)

However, given I have a very complex model and thus large BIC would this work:

Exp(log(H1/2) - log(H0/2))

Cheers,
Phil

Yes on both.
