LISREL by Scientific Software International

What is it? LISREL analyzes Structural Equations Models (SEM). Variations of these models include confirmatory factor analysis, analysis of covariance structures, path analysis, or causal modeling. LISREL is viewed by many as the most powerful and most difficult to learn of the SEM packages we have available.

What can I use it for? Students, faculty, and staff can use LISREL for university-related teaching and academic research purposes. Use that benefits outside organizations requires the purchase of a commercial license.

Where can I run it? For UTK, LISREL is available on Apps@UT and the computers in the OIT public computer labs. There is a two-simultaneous-user limit for LISREL.

How can I learn it? The user and reference guides are available in the software’s Help Menu.

Where can I get support? OIT offers Minimal Support for this software. Scientific Software international suggests various discussion networks for assistance.
