I will perform multigroup alignment analysis on the second-order model.
The following error message is displayed.

"*** ERROR in ANALYSIS command
Invariance analysis with ALIGNMENT=FIXED is not allowed when the model contains second-order factors."

My alternative method is set correlated factor model.

In AwC analysis, can i solve this problem(setting second order model)?

To set second order model, is there any solution or alternative method?

thank you.

The AwC method should work fine for you, i.e., run the alignment method first with correlated factors, then use the solution to fix the minimum number of parameters and replace the correlated factor model with the second order factor model.

Thank you !
I'll try using AwC method.

If I have any other questions, I will come back to ask.
