What is the key question that you ask yourself in SEM?
What is path analysis?
How do we evaluate how well our model fits the data?
Do we want a difference between the observed and expected correlation matrixes?
Is the Chi square analysis conducted on the variance - covariance matrix or the correlation matrix
The Maximum likelihood Chi square is the most common chi square in SEM, path analyis and CFA, what does it mean?
Why are there instances where the model fits the data well, yet the chi square is significant? and what do you do about it?

If a model is a poor fit we can examine a series of statistics to understand the source(s) of misfit. What is this called
