2016 Workshop: Measurement Models
August 3, 4, 5 2016 (Register here)

The 2016 Latent Variable Methods Workshop is held at the Brown University School of Professional Studies (200 Dyer Street, Providence Rhode Island [map]; just down the street from the Brown University Warren Alpert Medical School which will administer the workshop).

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. See a description of the topics covered here (next offered Aug 3-5 2016)
  • In odd-numbered years (next offered Aug 2-4, 2017) 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. See a description of the topics covered here
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. 

Workshop Fee
The workshop fee is $230 per day and is refundable. There is an early bird discount, and a discount for Brown faculty and staff.
