Structural Equation Modeling: Power Calculation Results - Quick Tab

Calculating Power

Select the Quick tab of the Structural Equation Modeling: Power Calculation Results dialog box to access options to interactively view the results of power calculations and generate plots of power as a function of quantities that affect power in practice.

X-Axis Graphing Parameters. The entries in the boxes under X-Axis Graphing Parameters establish the start value, end value, and number of steps on the X-axis for the graphs specified under Power Charts.

Start N. In the Start N box, enter the starting value of N to use in the Power vs. N  power chart.

End N. In the End N box, enter the final value of N to use in the Power vs. N  power chart.

Start R. In the Start R box, enter the starting value of R (RMSEA) used in the Power vs. R power chart.

End R. In the End R box, enter the final value of R (RMSEA) used in the Power vs. R power chart.

Start Df. In the Start Df box, enter the starting value of degrees of freedom (Df) used in the Power vs. Df  chart.

End Df. In the End Df box, enter the final value of degrees of freedom (Df) used in the Power vs. Df chart.

Start Alpha. In the Start Alpha box, enter the starting value of Alpha to use in the Power vs. Alpha power chart.

End Alpha. In the End Alpha box, enter the final value of Alpha to use in the Power vs. Alpha  power chart.

No. of Steps. In the No. of Steps box, enter the number of steps, or intervals, to plot on the X-axis in the power charts specified in the Power Charts group box.

Power Charts. Use the buttons under Power Charts to produce charts of power as a function of sample size, size of RMSEA, degrees of freedom, or type I error rate. Note that parameters given in the X-Axis Graphing Parameters group box control the range of values plotted on the X-axis and the number of steps plotted.

Power vs. N. Click the Power vs. N button to produce a plot of power versus sample size N.

Power vs. R. Click the Power vs. R button to produce a plot of power vs. RMSEA.

Power vs. Df. Click the Power vs. Df button to produce a plot of power vs. degrees of freedom (Df) for the model.

Power vs. Alpha. Click the Power vs. Alpha button to produce a plot of power vs. Type I error rate.
