We offer two workshops on latent variable methods using Mplus and R/lavaan
  • In even-numbered years we offer a three day workshop covering measurement models including item response theory.
  • In odd-numbered years we offer a three day workshop on longitudinal data analysis including latent growth curve models, random effect models, latent difference score models, and survival analysis.
Both workshops are targeted at novice to beginning users and include introductory material on latent variable modeling and the basics of using Mplus software, or the lavaan package in R. We cover how to use Mplus software interactively, as well as using Mplus via Stata and R. The workshop involves lecture and lab sessions where attendees practice running models on their own computers. Practice data and example problems (capable of being estimated with the Mplus demo version) are provided. The workshop fee is $230 per day and is refundable (register here, and submit payment via secure http here). There is an early bird discount, and a discount for Brown faculty and staff.
