Course content

Multilevel modeling is used for handling data with a clustered structure (e.g., students clustered in classrooms/schools, students’ responses clustered in measurement occasions) and has gained importance in educational and psychological research. This course gives an introduction to multilevel modeling with a focus on regression analysis. In particular, it presents the basic concepts of multilevel structures and evaluates different modeling techniques.

This course combines lectures and hands-on exercises, and builds up knowledge and skills that are essential for more advanced multilevel modeling techniques (e.g., multilevel longitudinal and structural equation modeling).
