The purpose of this workshop is to provide a gentle introduction to hierarchical linear modeling (HLM). Specifically, we will discuss four general types of research questions that can be answered and each of these translate to an HLM. The workshop will also discuss the use of the software HLM to estimate the model and how these results can be interpreted. Finally, we will discuss how an HLM can be used for growth modeling.
Prerequisites: Regression Analysis workshop or similar background. Individuals attending this workshop should have familiarity with basic inferential statistics and multiple regression.
Materials: Participants and encouraged to bring a laptop with the student version of HLM 7 software, available here: http://www.ssicentral.com/hlm/student.html
Instructor: Dr. Robert Henson is Associate Professor in the Department of Educational Research Methodology. His research interests include hierarchical linear models and their application. More information can be found at http://soe.uncg.edu/directory/faculty-and-staff/bio-roberthenson/.
