Seminar Overview:

This camp is an advanced intensive short seminar in the analysis of longitudinal data using SEM. The seminar will be a series of lectures and computer workshops to provide participants with advanced training in the use of SEM for the analysis of longitudinal data.

Seminar Topics:

  • Design and measurement issues in cross-sectional and longitudinal research
  • Traditional panel designs
  • Overview of missing data
  • Latent growth curve modeling
  • Testing for Mediation and Moderation
  • Multilevel and multiple group SEM
  • Using Phantom Constructs
  • Multiple group modeling

Seminar Description:

The seminar will be a series of lectures and computer workshops to provide participants with advanced training in the use of SEM for the analysis of longitudinal data.

Instructor: Todd D. Little, Ph.D.

Longitudinal SEM Training Course

Todd D. Little, PhD is a Professor and director of the Institute for Measurement, Methodology, Analysis and Policy at Texas Tech University. He is widely recognized for his quantitative work on various aspects of applied SEM (e.g., modern missing data treatments, indicator selection, parceling, modeling developmental processes) as well as his substantive developmental research (e.g., action-control processes and motivation, coping, and self-regulation). His work has garnered over 49,424 citations with an h-index of 97 and an i10-index of 261. In 2001, he was elected to membership in the Society for Multivariate Experimental Psychology, and in 2009, he was elected President of APA’s Division 5 (Evaluation, Measurement, and Statistics). He is a fellow in APA, APS, and AAAS. In 2013, he received the Cohen award from Division 5 of APA for distinguished contributions to teaching and mentoring and in 2015 he received the inaugural distinguished contributions award for mentoring developmental scientists from the Society for Research in Child Development. Both awards cited his founding of Stats Camp (Statscamp.org) in 2003 and its ongoing impact on shaping the quality of scientific inquiry for both past and future generations of researchers.

Seminar Includes:

Materials, downloads, recorded course video viewable for up to one year.

Learning Objectives:

This comprehensive 4-day statistics training institute on Longitudinal SEM will enable participants to:

  • Understand the strengths and weaknesses of the different models that can be applied to longitudinal data.
  • Develop a clear understanding of how the models can be specified and adapted to address the specific needs and questions of the investigator.
  • Gain knowledge of the ways in which one should formulate models test alternative models, and evaluate models with regard to statistical and practical significance.

Seminar Prerequisites:

If you already have a strong background in the application of SEM to analyze the covariance structure of multivariate data and you need to learn how to apply more advanced models to longitudinal data, this seminar is for you. We strongly recommend that you attend our five-day intensive summer institute on SEM Foundations as a pre-requisite to taking this 4-day advanced seminar. If you have not taken the foundations Seminar, you should have extensive experience or have taken a graduate-level seminar on SEM before enrolling.

Participants from a variety of fields, including sociology, psychology, education, human development, marketing, business, biology, medicine, political science, and communication, will benefit from the seminar.

Software and Computer Support:

Participants need to bring a laptop computer with Wi-Fi capabilities.

The seminar will support LISREL, Mplus or Laavan. Some assistance will be available for questions related to other structural modeling packages. Previous knowledge of LISREL, Mplus or Laavan is preferred but not required.

All statistical software used at Stats Camp will be available, free to participants, on our SMORS (statistical modeling on remote servers) system for the duration of camp.
