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

The School of Psychology at the University of East London 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 (20th to 21st August) 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 in partnership with Psychology at University of East London (https://www.uel.ac.uk/schools/psychology/). 

The courses offered in 2017 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.

Organiser

Ulster University and University of East London (Psychology)

Professor Mark Shevlin and Professor Gary Adamson from Ulster University will deliver the courses. They have extensive experience in delivering high quality training programmes in quantitative methods. They successfully delivered a three year programme of training (2011-2013) in latent variable modelling in Northern Ireland through the Researcher Development Initiative which was funded by the ESRC.

The workshop will be delivered in collaboration with the School of Psychology at the University of East London. The school includes undergraduates, postgraduate and doctoral students alongside highly qualified teaching staff with an extraordinary breadth of knowledge and vast range of specialisms. The School of Psychology is based at our historic Stratford campus, close to the town centre and the 2012 Olympic park with excellent transport links in and out of London.
