The purposes of this paper are to assist psychologists interested in using SEM by: 1) providing a brief overview of this method; and 2) describing best practice recommendations for testing models and reporting findings. We begin by providing a concise conceptual overview of SEM: its purpose, utility, and essential features, the latter through a diagrammatic representation of a mediational model.
