Courses: Multivariate Statistics (PSYCB502001)

Spring 2008

Class Number: 1274
This course is designed to introduce students to advanced statistical
techniques that are becoming increasingly important in developmental,
clinical and school psychology research. We focus on understanding
the advantages and limitations of common multivariate analytic
techniques that permit simultaneous prediction of multiple outcomes.
Emphasis is placed on helping students critically evaluate
applications of these techniques in the literature and the utility of
applying these techniques to their own work. Topics covered include
path modeling, ways of analyzing data collected over multiple points
in time (e.g., a growth curve capturing change in a developmental
variable during childhood), confirmatory factor analysis, and
measurement models. Students use existing data sets to gain
experience with statistical software that can be used for multivariate analyses.
