When we found such a model, we conducted further analyses to check for significant differences between the four different samples by estimating a multigroup model
In technical terms, this initial multigroup model
is termed the configurai model (Horn & McArdle, 1992) and is the first and least restrictive one to be tested.
estimated using Maximum Likelihood with robust error estimation (MLR).
Primary Goodness of Fit and Comparative Indices for the Six Models of Temporal Characteristics of Behavior (TCB) and Energetic Characteristics of Behavior (ECB) and Tests of structural invariance for multigroup model

The model showed a good fit with the data from both countries separately and also with the combined data, tested as a multigroup model

These differences in batches both across and within reaction vessels must be accounted for in a singe multigroup model
that will be required to 'model' all products being processed.
Model 2 was an unconstrained multigroup model
that evaluated the general form of the full model for teachers from different preparation programs.
The results from multigroup model
comparisons indicate that the factorial structure of these method effects was not significantly different for third and sixth graders.
We first tested a non-restricted multigroup model
, in which all parameter estimates were allowed to differ between boys and girls.
The fit of a multigroup model
(also called a "stacked model") is calculated as a weighted average of the fits obtained for each of the groups individually.
We also tested a multigroup model
that estimated the SEM for both the southern school respondents and northern school respondents separately.
