Statistics Training Seminars:
Comprehensive SEM Seminar
– Instructor, Todd Little, Ph.D. & Elizabeth Grandfield, Ph.D.
Do you want to take your measurement to the latent level? Well, this is it, you have found it, the foundation to what you need to know for latent variable modeling – structural equation modeling (SEM)! Most campers report their prior training was insufficient and/or outdated. We will introduce you to the current techniques and advances in SEM as well as guide you through the steps to ‘craft’ an exquisite SEM model.
Introduction to Multilevel Modeling using R Seminar
– Instructor, Alexander M. Schoemann, Ph.D.
Everything is nested, so you need something more than multiple regression or analysis of variance to get the job done! Nested data structures can include students within classrooms, professionals within corporations, patients within hospitals, or repeated observations from the same person. Multilevel modeling (MLM) is built to handle this kind of data. You will use real datasets and the R software environment to learn how to analyze multilevel data sets and interpret results of multilevel models.
Program Evaluation and
Cost Benefit Analysis Seminar
– Instructor, Mwarumba Mwavita, Ph.D.
Trying to get that grant or contract?! You need to have a rigorous, evidence-based plan to secure that funding. Almost all non-scientific evaluations will be unawarded or quickly dismissed. You need to assess your research project or program by conducting a rigorous evaluation of it. Fields such as sociology, psychology, education, human development, marketing, business, biology, medicine, political science, communication, governmental and nonprofit agencies, will benefit from the seminar.
Programming in R Seminar
– Instructor, Audrey Leroux, Ph.D.
The R learning curve can be steep, but we’re here to help you get through that curve! R is a freely available, open source software platform that is growing in both popularity and capacity across many fields of science. Once you move into the R world, you’ll find that it can be used for all stages of data analysis, from wrangling and cleaning, to a wide variety of statistical analyses, to generating quality visualizations ready for publication!
– Instructor, Larry Price, Ph.D.
We’re all looking to measure something, but we first need to understand what how that measurement process works! Psychometrics is the underlying science behind all of your tests and measurements used to evaluate psychological attributes, whether those are ability, aptitude, achievement, attitudes, interests, personality, cognitive functioning, and mental health. This course will introduce you to the measurement and statistical concepts that are central to psychometrics, as well as the psychometric fundamentals of factor analysis and Item Response Theory.
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
