508 Longitudinal Structural Equation Modeling 3 Longitudinal structural equation modeling and the use of Mplus statistical software to perform and interpret a broad range of longitudinal structural equation models. Recommended preparation: ED PSYCH 576, PSYCH 514, PSYCH 516, or previous knowledge of multivariate analysis and factor analysis.

510 Multilevel Modeling II: Advanced Multilevel Models for Longitudinal Data 3 Advanced applications of the general linear mixed model (aka multilevel model, hierarchical linear model, latent growth curve model, random coefficients model) used to analyze data from longitudinal, repeated measures designs; conduct cumulative steps in a longitudinal multilevel analysis, including setting up data file and coding variables, evaluating fixed and random effects and interpreting covariance structures, predicting between- and within-person variation using time-invariant and time-varying covariates, and interpreting empirical findings. Recommended preparation: ED PSYCH 575 or previous knowledge of multivariate analysis and multilevel modeling.
