  Modelling the Mechanisms of Change – An Introduction to Latent Variable Models.

The School of Psychology at Ulster University is pleased to offer a series of short courses funded by the ESRC under the Advanced Training Initiative. The courses are part of a 3-year programme of training entitled Modelling Mechanisms of Change Using Longitudinal Archived Data. This year’s course will run for 2 days (11th to 12th January 2018) and will provide an introduction to latent variable modelling with an emphasis on longitudinal data analysis. The course is free of charge and available and is available to all social science research students, early career researchers, and academic staff.

The course will be delivered by Professors Mark Shevlin and Gary Adamson from Ulster University.

The courses offered in 2018 will cover the following topics:

  • Overview and applications of latent variable models.
  • Latent growth models.
  • Mixture models.
  • Growth mixture models.
  • Latent transition models.
  • Cross-lagged models with observed and latent variables.
  • Difference score models.
  • Piecewise growth models.

All analyses will be conducted using the SPSS and Mplus software packages. Each day will conclude with a questions and answers session and there will be opportunities for the participants to discuss their own studies with the tutors.

What's expected of me?

It is expected that participants will have some knowledge of different variable types (nominal, ordinal, etc.), descriptive statistics and a working knowledge of hypothesis testing prior to taking the course. An understanding of regression and correlation would be a benefit. All materials required for the course will be provided.

The following websites provide accessible overviews of latent variable models.

This is the homepage for the Mplus software. It has links to examples, data, and tutorials.

This provides a gentle introduction to latent variable modelling.

There are also many online video resources available at Statmodel
