What is it? Amos (Analysis of Moment Structures) analyzes Structural Equation Models (SEM) by either drawing a path diagram or programming a command language. These models are also known as LISREL models, confirmatory factor analysis, analysis of covariance structures, path analysis, or causal modeling.
What can I use it for? Students, faculty, and staff can use Amos for university-related teaching and academic research purposes. Amos may not be used for commercial research or administrative purposes. Use that benefits outside organizations requires the purchase of a commercial license.
Where can I run it? Amos is available at no additional charge to faculty, staff and students at all UT campuses for installation on university-owned and personally-owned Windows PCs. The download and installation instructions are at the OIT software download page. At UTK, Amos is also available on OIT’s Apps@UT server and the computers in the OIT public computer labs. There is no simultaneous user limit for Amos.
