Calculate more fit indices that are not already provided in lavaan.
1  moreFitIndices(object, fit.measures = "all", nPrior = 1)

object 
The lavaan model object provided after running the 
fit.measures 
Additional fit measures to be calculated. All additional fit measures are calculated by default 
nPrior 
The sample size on which prior is based. This argument is used to compute BIC*. 
Gamma Hat (gammaHat; West, Taylor, & Wu, 2012) is a global fit index which can be computed (assuming equal number of indicators across groups) by
gammaHat =\frac{p}{p + 2 \times \frac{χ^{2}_{k}  df_{k}}{N}} ,
where p is the number of variables in the model, χ^{2}_{k} is
the χ^2 test statistic value of the target model, df_{k} is
the degree of freedom when fitting the target model, and N is the
sample size (or sample size minus the number of groups if mimic
is
set to "EQS"
).
Adjusted Gamma Hat (adjGammaHat; West, Taylor, & Wu, 2012) is a global fit index which can be computed by
adjGammaHat = ≤ft(1  \frac{K \times p \times (p + 1)}{2 \times df_{k}} \right) \times ≤ft( 1  gammaHat \right) ,
where K is the number of groups (please refer to Dudgeon, 2004 for the multiplegroup adjustment for agfi*).
Corrected Akaike Information Criterion (aic.smallN; Burnham & Anderson, 2003) is a corrected version of AIC for small sample size, often abbreviated AICc:
aic.smallN = AIC + \frac{2k(k + 1)}{N  k  1},
where AIC is the original AIC: 2 \times LL + 2k (where k = the number of estimated parameters in the target model). Note that AICc is a smallsample correction derived for univariate regression models, so it is probably not appropriate for comparing SEMs.
Corrected Bayesian Information Criterion (bic.priorN; Kuha, 2004) is similar to BIC but explicitly specifying the sample size on which the prior is based (N_{prior}).
bic.priorN = f + k\log{(1 + N/N_{prior})},
Stochastic information criterion (SIC; Preacher, 2006) is similar to AIC or BIC. This index will account for model complexity in the model's function form, in addition to the number of free parameters. This index will be provided only when the χ^2 value is not scaled. The SIC can be computed by
sic = \frac{1}{2}≤ft(f  \log{\det{I(\hat{θ})}}\right),
where I(\hat{θ}) is the information matrix of the parameters.
HannanQuinn Information Criterion (hqc; Hannan & Quinn, 1979) is used for model selection similar to AIC or BIC.
hqc = f + 2k\log{(\log{N})},
Note that if Satorra–Bentler or Yuan–Bentler's method is used, the fit indices using the scaled χ^2 values are also provided.
