Dear Authorized, I want to compare three models through ulsmw estimator with categorical data. Which one is 4-related factors (h), the second one is 4-unrelated factors (a1), and the third one is one factor model (a2). why is chisquare 1390 for 1. diff. test (h-a1), while second diff test 326 (h-a2)?
I used difftest command as stated in mplus manual.
the scale has multifactor, in that case, Should the first diff test be greater than the second one?

Thank you very much, but I'm confused that the output warns that "The chi-square value for ULSMV cannot be used for chi-square difference testing in the regular way. Instead ULSMV difference testing is done using the DIFFTEST option."
When I run the syntaxes using nested command that you suggest me, output gives me that (h-a1) is nested but (h-a2) is not.
