## Abstract

Model of spline truncated in structural equation modeling (SEM) is a nonlinear structural model of SEM that measures a nonlinear relationship between the latent variables. This report was developed a hypothesis testing for the parameter of spline truncated model in nonlinear SEM using likelihood ratio test (LRT). To test hypothesis H_{0}:C′γ = τ versus H_{0}:C′γ ≠ τ in spline truncated model of nonlinear SEM for matrix C, vector parameter γ and a constant vector τ, is discovered that a statistical testing is in form of (Formula presented) which has a distribution F(d_{1},d_{2}), and rejects H_{0} in which W values are quite large.
