AMOS, Means and Intercept Modeling

Amos and similar programs are usually used to estimate variances, covariances, and regression weights, and to test hypotheses about those parameters. 

Means and intercepts are not usually estimated, and hypotheses about means and intercepts are not usually tested. 

At least in part, means and intercepts have been left out of structural equation modeling because of the relative difficulty of specifying models that include those parameters.
    Amos, however, was designed to make means and intercept modeling easy. The present example is the first of several showing how to estimate means and intercepts and test hypotheses about them.
