implied covariance matrix and the observed matrix are used to calculate the residual
matrix. The smaller the residual matrix, the better the model estimation, thus iteration
continues until the residual matrix is minimized (Hoyle, 1995). This...

Evaluation of fit.
Once a model has been specified and estimated (the residual matrix minimized),
the fit of the model to the data must be evaluated. There are several indexes used to
evaluate the fit of a model. The chi-square goodness-of-fit...
In order to determine whether the QRI and/or the DRP tests were accurate in what they proposed to measure, the researcher analyzed the participants’ reading trends. Books that the participants were currently reading were analyzed to help...
