COURSE OBJECTIVE
This applied course is designed for graduate students with a prior background in statistics. This means that students should have considerable experience with multiple regression and an ability to conduct such analyses using some statistical software. The major topics of the course will include hierarchical linear modeling and structural equation modeling. This course aims at refreshing the statistical knowledge of the students and presenting advanced statistical methods which will possibly be needed during dissertation and further academic studies.
