  • 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 a foundational knowledge of regression analysis. Prior Mplus experience 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 four 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.
