IBM SPSS - Advanced: Longitudinal Data Analysis – Mixed and Latent Variable Growth Curve Models

Course description

This workshop is an extension of the first part which focuses on repeated measures ANOVA.  It introduces longitudinal analyses with linear mixed models and latent variable growth curve models. The advantages of those more complex approaches are addressed. Although this course is aimed to be practically orientated with extensive use of the statistical software, brief theoretical introductions to these data analysis approaches 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.

Type of course

Hands-on computer course
