Multilevel Modeling Using R Workshop
June 15-19, 2020
Dr. D. Betsy McCoach & Dr. Randi L. Garcia
This week-long workshop on Multilevel Modeling Using R will be held at the University of Connecticut from Monday, June 11, through Friday, June 15, 2018. This workshop covers the basics and applications of multilevel modeling with extensions to more complex designs. Participants will learn how to analyze both organizational and longitudinal (mostly growth curve) data using multilevel modeling and to interpret the results from their analyses. Although the workshop does not require any prior knowledge or experience with multilevel modeling, participants are expected to have a working knowledge of multiple regression as well as some experience using statistical software (such as SPSS, SAS, R, Stata). Instruction consists of lecture, computer workshops, and individualized consultations. The emphasis will be practical with minimal emphasis on statistical theory, but those seeking more statistical information can arrange an individualized session with the instructors. A teaching assistant will also be available for consultation and assistance. All analyses will be demonstrated using R. We will also discuss other software options, such as HLM, Stata, and Mplus. Instruction will consist of lectures, computer demonstrations of data analyses, and hands-on opportunities to analyze practice data sets using R as well as individual consultations with instructors. No prior familiarity with R is required.
