Registration now open for MLM/SEM Workshops

IEA is pleased to open the registration for its upcoming workshops on the topics of Multilevel Linear Modeling (MLM) with Large-Scale Assessment (Oct 26th – 30th, 2020) and Structural Equation Modeling (SEM): Foundations and Multilevel Advancement (Nov 23rd – 27th, 2020).

Due to the ongoing health concerns caused by COVID-19 pandemic, IEA has decided to conduct these workshop modules virtually. We hope that this will encourage many of you to join.  

What do these workshops offer?

The workshop contains two modules with the first focusing on MLM (October 26-30th, 2020) and the second focusing on SEM and ML-SEM (November 23-27th, 2020). Parties may participate in either one or both of the workshop modules. A prerequisite to follow the content of the ML-SEM part of the second module is the solid knowledge of MLM.

At the workshops participants will be introduced to the theory and application of both techniques, considering in particular features specific to large-scale assessment data. The workshop module on the SEMbuilds upon the knowledge from the MLM module presenting how to combine these two techniques in one joint multilevel structural equation model (ML-SEM) approach. Through hands-on-trainings, participants will gain practical experience in applying MLM, SEM, and ML-SEM to large-scale assessment data using Mplus. The workshop modules will be delivered in the virtual format. The workshop language is English.
