CFA - Measurement Invariance PreviousNext

I am testing for factorial invariance of a measuring instrument across two groups (treatment/control). I am able to run the configural model with factor means constrained to zero and factor loadings and intercepts not constrained equal. I have no group specific model parameters because they model generally runs the same for both groups.

Can I just leave one group-specific model parameter blank (model control) and enter the syntax for the non-constrained factor loadings in the second group-specific model parameter (model exp)?

Thank you!

With full invariance you specify the model only in the overall Model part, not in the group-specific model parts.
