Statistics Training Seminars:
Comprehensive SEM Seminar
– Instructor, Todd Little, Ph.D. & Elizabeth Grandfield, Ph.D. Candidate
This camp is an advanced intensive short seminar in the using latent variable models also called structural equation models. The seminar will be a series of lectures and exercises to provide you with advanced training in the use of SEM for the analysis of both cross-sectional and longitudinal data. Even if you have taken a prior seminar on SEM, this comprehensive seminar will serve as a refresher on basic concepts but also introduce you to the latest advances in the craft of structural equation modeling. 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.
Introduction to Multilevel Modeling using R Seminar
– Instructor, Alexander M. Schoemann, Ph.D.
This seminar is designed to introduce theoretical and applied understandings of multilevel modeling. The fundamentals of multilevel modeling are taught by extending knowledge of regression analyses to designs involving a nested data structure. Nested data structures include, for example, students within classrooms, professionals within corporations, patients within hospitals, or repeated observations from the same person. In each of these cases and many more, the data are hierarchically arranged and may require methods beyond multiple regression or analysis of variance. These methods fall under the heading of multilevel modeling, which is also sometimes referred to as mixed modeling, hierarchical linear modeling, or random coefficients modeling.
Program Evaluation and
Cost Benefit Analysis Seminar
– Instructor, Mwarumba Mwavita, Ph.D.
This Stats Camp institute is an intensive short seminar on the principles and practice of program evaluation and cost-effectiveness and cost-benefit analysis. Topics include program theory, needs assessment, monitoring progress and measuring outcomes, cost-effectiveness vs. cost-benefit analysis, time and discounting, sensitivity analysis and risk analysis, and SEM and decision tree extensions of cost-benefit analysis.
Programming in R Seminar
– Instructor, Audrey Leroux, Ph.D.
R is a freely available, open source software platform that is growing in both popularity and capacity. The first part of the seminar introduces the logic of R’s primary data structures and how to work with functions. The second part of the seminar covers tools and best practices for cleaning, manipulating, and visualizing data. It also introduces the concept of reproducibility as a fundamental tenet of high-quality data analysis.
Participants will receive an electronic copy of all seminar materials, including lecture slides, practice datasets, software scripts, relevant supporting documentation, and recommended readings. Participants will also have access to a video recording of the seminar.
– Instructor, Larry Price, Ph.D.
Psychometrics is defined as the science of evaluating the characteristics of tests or other devices designed to measure psychological attributes of people. Tests are broadly defined as devices for measuring ability, aptitude, achievement, attitudes, interests, personality, cognitive functioning, and mental health. Application of psychometrics to psychology and social/behavioral science constitutes an organized effort to (a) develop and test theory-based measurement procedures for the development of tests and other measurement instruments/devices and (b) advance knowledge in psychological and sensory processes.
Participants will receive an electronic copy of all course materials, including lecture slides, practice datasets, software scripts, relevant supporting documentation, and recommended readings. Participants will also have access to a video recording of the course.
Stats Camp is an internationally recognized award winning educational event focused on advanced statistical training at the graduate and post graduate level. Each year, full week long Stats Camps and Mini Camps are held in locations throughout the world.
We hear it over and over from our campers that our value and excellence propelled their research forward!
“I was really amazed how comprehensive and hands-on the mini camp was. I am confident that I can take everything I learned, from the basic to the advanced topics, and employ them independently in my own research.”
-Katie Paschall, M.S., Doctoral Candidate The University of Arizona
“Stats Camp is the best ever—hands down! Virtually everything about it is superb—material presented is thorough and well documented, slide content is always clear and readable, time for questions and discussion is generous. Participants are also provided with an abundance of supportive resources. In my view, Todd Little’s Stats Camp is an absolute gold mine.”
-Barbara Byrne, School of Psychology, University of Ottawa
