An Introduction to Hierarchical Linear Modeling for Education Researchers

An Introduction to Hierarchical Linear Modeling for Education Researchers
 
This course will introduce the fundamentals ofhierarchical linear modeling (HLM), focusing on fundamental concepts and practical applications with very minimal emphasis on statisticaltheory. In addition to presenting a conceptual overview of HLM, theinstructors will utilize a school-based example to demonstrate theapplication of HLM within an organizational framework. Participants will learn how to analyze 2-level data using HLM 7, and they will learn tointerpret the results of the analyses. Instruction will consist oflecture, demonstrations of the software, and hands-on data analysisopportunities.

Students should be prepared with a laptop equipped with the free student version of HLMv7 (from www.ssicentral.com) and SPSS or another data manipulation software. The course example data will run on the student version of HLM. (Please note that there is noMAC version of the HLM software program.)
