The 2008 Workshop Focused on Exploratory Factor Analysis, Confirmatory Factor Analysis, Factor Analysis with Discrete Outcomes, Item Response Theory, Differential Item Functioning, and the MIMIC (Multiple Indicators, Multiple Causes) model and approach to measurement noninvariance. We also briefly touched on factor mixture models.
