Univariate and Multivariate Specification Search Indices in Covariance Structure Modeling.
Hutchinson, Susan R.
Journal of Experimental Education, v61 n2 p171-81 Win 1993
Simulated population data were used to compare relative performances of the modification index and C. Chou and P. M. Bentler's Lagrange multiplier test (a multivariate generalization of a modification index) for four levels of model misspecification. Both indices failed to recover the true model except at the lowest level of misspecification. (SLD)
