Structural equation modeling (SEM) is one of the most popular multivariate statistical techniques in Turkish educational research. This study elaborates the SEM procedures employed by 75 educational research articles which were published from 2010 to 2015 in Turkey. After documenting and coding 75 academic papers, categorical frequencies and percentages were calculated in the content analysis. Methodological issues related to use of SEM were identified. The results showed that usage and reporting SEM in Turkish educational research articles were mostly problematic. Content analysis revealed that educational researchers tend to avoid assumption testing of SEM and reporting estimation methods. General guidelines and suggestions on the use of SEM were provided.
