Structural equation modeling (SEM) is a general, cross-sectional statistical modeling technique. The chapters in this book propose a Bayesian approach based on SEM; an examination of predictors and outcomes related to school climate using latent class analysis and the testing of specific effects and contrasts in three types of mediation models followed by a discussion on the common types of mediation models and their different types of effects.
