Dr. Christian Geiser is a Professor of Quantitative Psychology at Utah State University, author of two books on Mplus, and a leader in the development of latent variable techniques for complex data. With his accessible books and sought-after workshops, he has helped thousands of researchers and students around the world to achieve their analytic goals. This course is part of a companion series of workshops to his books and articles.
I don't have access to Mplus. Can I still benefit from this course?
Absolutely. You can engage in the full curriculum using only the demo version of Mplus, which is FREE. Dr. Geiser will provide instructions about getting the demo installed on your computer.
What level of statistical training is required for the course?
This course is for learners with foundational knowledge of confirmatory factor analysis. A working understanding of the Mplus software is helpful, but not required. Need a beginner-focused course? Mplus from Scratch gives you everything you need to be ready for this workshop.
There is no way that I will be able to set aside the two days required to take this course. Is the timing flexible?
We understand completely! The timing is entirely up to you. Once you enroll and the course has launched, you will have unlimited access to the content. You are free to pause and return to your lessons as needed.
Will you give me feedback on my analyses?
Unfortunately, personal feedback is not possible given the volume of researchers we serve. We are certain that Dr. Geiser's thorough approach to guiding you through every step of using Mplus, along with the helpful handouts and guides included in the course, will enable you to successfully perform multilevel modeling techniques with your own data. Note that we are always happy to help you navigate any technical issues related to the course itself.
QuantFish is dedicated to providing courses that improve your analytic skills with accessible lessons from the world's leading methodologists. Latent State-Trait Modeling with Mplus is backed by a complete money-back guarantee for 7 days following the start of the course.
