The same arguments as for any lavaan model. See Users must explicitly specify the name of the input elements for this function to catch. For example, specify 'data = HolzingerSwineford' instead just 'HolzingerSwineford'. |

Perform projection method for testing the equality of two latent means without requiring the cross-group intercepts to be the same. A validity index is provided as the proportion of the differences in manifest variables intercepts explained by latent mean differences as a gauge of the quality of measurements.

A list is returned with:

`fit.metric`

test of metric invariance (factor loadings). This is a prerequisite for testing equality of latent means.

`mvdif.test`

t tests of the cross-group sample means for each variable.

`chi.stat`

Three chi-square tests for intercepts, common factors, and specific factors.

`chi.stat`

will be needed for equivalence testing.`common.test`

t tests of common factors for each variable.

`specific.test`

t tests of specific factors for each variable.

`latent.test`

t tests of latent means

`V.index`

validity index

`Pmat`

projection matrix of intercepts into the space of common factors

`Qmat`

projection matrix of intercepts into the space of specific factors
