Basic and Complete Bootstrapping

Post by alfpina » Fri May 18, 2018 10:53 am


In MGA I run the basic bootstrapping with no problem, but when I try to run the complete bootstrapping it freezes.
I'm working on a MAC (high sierra), and already done the modifications that are suggested on your website.
I did all the validations to the model, and they seem OK, and also I have the minimum number of observations for each group by the 10* rule.
Can you please help me?

Thank you,

The freezing problem may occur in bootstrapping with the complete option. It is a rare problem with the new fit measures that are calculated within the complete bootstrapping. Under some circumstances these fit indices are simply not defined. We have fixed that problem and now enable a continuous run, even when these problems occur. A small update to the current release is almost ready to be published within the next weeks.
