The article tackles the practice of testing latent variable models. The analysis covered recently published studies from 11 psychology journals varying in orientation and impact. Seventy-five studies that matched the criterion of applying some of the latent modeling techniques were reviewed. Results indicate the presence of a general tendency to ignore the model test (χ(2)) followed by the acceptance of approximate fit hypothesis without detailed model examination yielding relevant empirical… CONTINUE READING
