Abstract

A case for structural equation modelling (SEM) in educational technology research was made by Teo (2009) who reviewed all full‐text papers published in BJET from 2000 (volume 31, number 1) through 2009 (volume 40, number 3). From this body of works, only five papers were found to have employed SEM as the research framework. Despite the advantages of SEM in social science research, its use in educational technology research is low relative to those in psychology, management sciences and sociology. The aim of this colloquium piece is to highlight issues in SEM and offer guidelines on how potential users may approach SEM.
