Multilevel Modeling: A Second Course

A 3-Day Livestream Seminar Taught by

Kristopher Preacher
Course Dates:

Thursday, November 10 –
Saturday, November 12, 2022

Schedule: All sessions are held live via Zoom. All times are ET (New York time).

10:00am-12:30pm ET (convert to your local time)
1:30pm-4:00pm ET Thursday, 1:30pm-3:30pm ET Friday & Saturday

Hierarchically clustered (multilevel or nested) data are common in the social sciences, medical fields, and business research. Clustered data violate the assumption of independence required by ordinary statistical methods. Increasingly complex research designs and hypotheses have created a need for sophisticated methods that go beyond standard multilevel modeling (MLM).

This “second course” in MLM will introduce a variety of MLM extensions, including cutting-edge multilevel structural equation modeling (MSEM) to handle complex designs and modeling objectives. Throughout the seminar, empirical examples will be presented to illustrate key concepts. A background in structural equation modeling (SEM) is not necessary.

Starting November 10, we are offering this seminar as a 3-day synchronous*, livestream workshop held via the free video-conferencing software Zoom. Each day will consist of two lecture sessions which include hands-on exercises, separated by a 1-hour break. You are encouraged to join the lecture live, but will have the opportunity to view the recorded session later in the day if you are unable to attend at the scheduled time.

*We understand that finding time to participate in livestream courses can be difficult. If you prefer, you may take all or part of the course asynchronously. The video recordings will be made available within 24 hours of each session and will be accessible for four weeks after the seminar, meaning that you will get all of the class content and discussions even if you cannot participate synchronously.

Closed captioning is available for all live and recorded sessions.

"...Kristopher Preacher explained concepts and steps in a way that made it easy for me, a beginner, to understand."

“The facilitator, Kristopher Preacher, explained concepts and steps in a way that made it easy for me, a beginner, to understand. He walks you through how to run different models and gives clear explanations that help you to better understand other reading materials.”

"Kristopher made the light bulbs go off in my head.”

“I signed up for this workshop with a background in SEM, but had no knowledge of multilevel modeling. However, after just an introduction into multilevel modeling by Dr. Preacher, I understood the essential assumptions and logic of multilevel models and how they are related to SEM. By the second day of the workshop, I could anticipate how and why multilevel modeling is a subsect of SEM. Kristopher made the light bulbs go off in my head.”

"Invaluable for researchers..."

“The course was well-structured, starting with some basics to help everyone understand as it got into more advanced levels. Invaluable for researchers as it not only enhances your use of statistical tools but also brings to mind many different ways research could be designed and demonstrated in the extensive use of examples.”

"I appreciated the demonstrations of using Mplus to do unusual “I never would have thought of that” things..."

“I liked the detailed working through of the material. I also appreciated the demonstrations of using Mplus to do unusual “I never would have thought of that” things, particularly in the appendices sections.”
