Methods courses offered in collaboration with the Graduate School of Psychology
Basics of structural equations modelling with MPLUS (in Finnish)
Structural equations modeling is becoming more and more used as a quantitative research analysis method. Also many entirely new methods build upon it. It is in essence a combination of confirmatory factor analysis and regression analysis. It is suited for the testing of theories ("path models") postulating relations among several variables. It fits very nicely with longitudinal designs, but requires rather large data sets and some background knowledge of statistics.
- What: course with lectures and demos
- Language: Finnish
- When and where: part I: 27.-28.8.09, part II 10.-11.9.09, University of Jyväskylä
