Data Analysis Training Institute of Connecticut 2020

DATIC, founded in 2003 by David A. Kenny, offers professional development summer workshops in a variety of modern data analytic techniques. All workshops are geared toward researchers who wish to utilize these techniques in their own work. The maximum enrollment for all DATIC week-long workshops is 24 students, which allows for personal contact with the instructors and a great deal of hands-on learning. Although all workshops are introductory, they do assume familiarity with traditional statistical techniques such as multiple regression, as well as familiarity with a general purpose statistical software package, such as SPSS, SAS, R, Stata, etc.  In June 2020, DATIC is offering 2 week-long workshops:

Structural Equation Modeling Using Mplus
June 8-12, 2020
Dr. D. Betsy McCoach
This introductory workshop on Structural Equation Modeling covers basics of path analysis, confirmatory factor analysis, and latent variable modeling. Using Mplus, participants will learn how to build, evaluate, and revise structural equation models using Mplus. Although the workshop does not require any prior knowledge or experience with SEM, participants are expected to have a working knowledge of multiple regression, as well as some experience using a statistical software program. The class takes place in a computer lab with Mplus on every computer so there is no need to bring a computer or a copy of Mplus to the workshop.

Multilevel Modeling Using R
June 15-19, 2020
Dr. D. Betsy McCoach and Dr. Randi L. Garcia
This workshop covers the basics and applications of multilevel modeling with extensions to more complex designs. Participants will learn how to analyze both organizational and longitudinal (mostly growth curve) data using multilevel modeling and to interpret the results from their analyses. Although the workshop does not require any prior knowledge or experience with multilevel modeling, participants are expected to have a working knowledge of multiple regression. The emphasis will be practical with minimal emphasis on statistical theory, but those seeking more statistical information can arrange an individualized session with the instructors. All analyses will be demonstrated using R. Instruction will consist of lectures, computer demonstrations of data analyses, and hands-on opportunities to analyze practice data sets using R. No prior familiarity with R is required. Although all examples are presented in R, we will also discuss other software options, including HLM, Stata, and Mplus.

Both Workshops begin at 9AM and end at 5PM Monday through Thursday. On Friday, the workshop runs from 9AM-12PM, and is followed by a closing lunch from 12PM-1PM.

**Please note if a guest is reserving for two sessions they will need to complete two separate registrations.**
