Part of the IIRDA Quantitative Methods Series
This course builds on the foundational material presented in Theory Construction and Model Building – Foundations. Specifically, this course teaches participants how to match analytic techniques to a model specific to their research interest. The focus is on the rationale, process and application of statistical techniques to answer associated research questions. Emphasis is on conducting data analyses using IBM SPSS AMOS and Mplus. The workshop also includes examples and discussion on how to structure and write results for peer-reviewed journal articles and analytic strategies for competitive grant proposals. Participants should have a rental copy of AMOS or free trial copy of Mplus on their laptop for the workshop (Texas State does not have these programs on the Alkek classroom computers).
This workshop is co-sponsored by the Testing, Research-Support, and Evaluation Center (TREC); the Institute for Interdisciplinary Research Design and Analysis (IIRDA); and the Office of Academic Development and Assessment (ADA).
