IBM SPSS - Advanced: Linear Mixed Models
This course builds on the skills taught in the previous courses and aims to introduce a variety of multilevel modelling approaches. Linear Mixed Models can be seen as a generalisation of the General Linear Model (GLM) family that can handle the data where observations are not independent. Although this course is aimed to be practically orientated with extensive use of the IBM SPSS statistical package, theoretical considerations related to the selection of an appropriate statistical test as well as assumptions involved are addressed.
This course is under great demand. If your circumstances change and you cannot attend, please cancel your enrolment as quickly as possible.
