EWSSb 2016 - Mixed Modeling: Learning to Love the Standard Deviation

This workshop will be presented by Will Hopkins, professor of research design and statistics at Victoria University of Melbourne and a fellow of ECSS. Professor Hopkins will explain how mixed models are just the usual fixed-effect models with the addition of random effects that are summarized as between-subject and within-subject standard deviations representing individual differences, individual responses, and various errors.  He will then explain how to run mixed models in SAS, SPSS and R to analyze data from controlled trials and other designs with repeated measurement or clustering.

Before you come to the conference, please download this zip-compressed file of materials on the use of SAS Studio/University Edition, and follow the instructions in  “Read first to get started.docx”.  Also download this zip-compressed file on mixed modeling with the R package.
