Hi,
How can add additional parameter in ESEM for factor loadings?
Thank you!

Best wishes!

ESEM is EFA. You can't add any factor loadings.

Hi,
Thank you!
In CFA, I can set F1 BY x1-x6*(p1-p6) in the following example. How to do in ESEM? Thank you!

DATA: FILE IS p.dat;
VARIABLE: NAMES ARE x1-x6;
MODEL: F1 BY x1-x6*(p1-p6);
F1@1;
MODEL CONSTRAINT:
new(H1);
H1=(p1+p2+p3+p4+p5+p6);
OUTPUT:
CINTERVAL;

You cannot put constraints on ESEM factors. Your model has only one factor so CFA and EFA are the same.

Hi,
Thank you!
Is there a method to compute the sum of factor loadings in mplus software as the same as H1 in the CFA example? Thank you!


Best wishes!

I don't understand your question.

Hi,
We can compute the sum of factor loadings in mplus software in the CFA example by setting (F1 "BY x1-x6*(p1-p6); MODEL CONSTRAINT:
new(H1);
H1=(p1+p2+p3+p4+p5+p6);"
How can we do in ESEM?

Best wishes!

This cannot be done with ESEM.

How can we do in ESEM? I eagerly need this function. I think that other researcher also need this function. Can you write code to achieve this function.
Thank you!

Best wishes!

You cannot do this with ESEM. You could do it with EFA in a CFA framework. You will find the input for this in the Topic 1 course handout on the website.

Hi,
I can not find the input for this in the Topic 1 course handout on the website. Can you explain clearly? Thank you!

Best wishes!
