Tenko Raykov  

Tenko Raykov is Professor of Measurement and Quantitative Methods at Michigan State University, East Lansing, USA. His applied statistics and measurement expertise areas include latent variable modeling, structural equation modeling, scale construction and development, reliability and validity evaluation, item response theory, multilevel (hierarchical data) modeling, missing data analysis, longitudinal modeling, survival analysis, and multivariate statistics. He has published more than 100 papers in leading quantitative behavioral science journals, including “Structural Equation Modeling”, “British Journal of Mathematical and Statistical Psychology”, “Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics”, “Multivariate Behavioral Research”, “Applied Psychological Measurement”, and “Educational and Psychological Measurement”. He is also on the editorial boards of most of these journals, and has co-authored several textbooks in applied statistics and measurement in the educational, behavioral, and social sciences.

Steve Raudenbush & Tony Bryk  

Steve Raudenbush is a professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of Chicago.

His research interests include: Analysis of Multilevel Data; and Methods for Studying Psychological Change Within Schools, Classrooms, and Families.

He considers his most significant achievement to date as having people use improved statistical methods to study children in educational settings and seeing research improve as a result. He has spent the last 10 years focusing on building into statistical models the fact that children are clustered into social settings rather than just solitary individuals. In addition, he has also presented workshops at national meetings to enable people to understand these methods.

Tony Bryk

Tony Bryk is the President of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. He is also Consulting Professor in Organizational Behavior at Stanford University.

His research interests include: Analysis of Multilevel Data; Research on School Organization and its Effects; and Socio-Political Organization of Applied Social Science.

Karl Jöreskog & Ken Bollen

Karl Jöreskog

Karl Jöreskog is Professor Emeritus at Uppsala University (Sweden), Professor at the Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration in Bergen (Norway) and Professor at the Norwegian School of Management in Oslo (Norway). His research interests include: multivariate analysis, factor analysis, covariance structure analysis, structural equation models, and statistical applications in behavioral and social sciences. Together with Professor Dag Sörbom, he developed the LISREL model and the LISREL computer program.

Ken Bollen is the Director of the Odum Institute for Research in Social Science and the Henry Rudolph Immerwahr Distinguished Professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. His research interests include Structural Equation Models and Comparative Research on Democracy. He wrote the standard reference book on SEM: Structural Equations with Latent Variables (1989, Wiley).

Ralph O. Mueller & Gregory Hancock  

Ralph O. Mueller

Ralph O. Mueller is the Professor of Educational Leadership, Professor of Psychology, and Dean of the College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions (ENHP) at the University of Harford, CT. He is the author of an introductory SEM textbook and co-edited a more advanced text with Gregory Hancock: Structural Equation Modeling: A Second Course (2006, Information Age Publishing). He conducts regular SEM seminars for the American Educational Research Association and is a former chair of its special interest group on SEM. He serves on several editorial boards and is a charter member of the board of Structural Equation Modeling: A Multidisciplinary Journal. With Gregory Hancock he contributed a chapter to the Festschrift for Prof. Jöreskog.

Gregory Hancock is a professor in the Department of Measurement, Statistics and Evaluation at the University of Maryland, College Park. His SEM research interest lies primarily in latent variable experimental design and analysis, e.g., projects dealing with latent growth models, as well as the use of MIMIC models and structured means modeling to facilitate inference regarding latent construct means. He is past chair of the SEM special interest group of the American Educational Research Association. He also serves on the editorial board of a number of journals, including Structural Equation Modeling: A Multidisciplinary Journal. He contributed a chapter to the Festschrift for Prof. Jöreskog with Ralph Mueller.
