2017 Statistics Workshops: Diagnostic Modeling and Multilevel Longitudinal

Learn from instructors who wrote the book(s) on the topics! All workshops are given in a relaxed atmosphere with ample time for one-on-one interaction with the instructors.

Stats on the Beach is a workshop series taught by Lesa Hoffman and Jonathan Templin (co-founders of AnalyticAble LLC). In 2017 we are offering two workshops, located in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina:
  • Diagnostic Measurement (May 22-25, by Jonathan Templin)
  • Introduction to Longitudinal Multilevel Models (May 30-June 2, by Lesa Hoffman)
Our format for each includes separate morning and late afternoon sessions, with a long mid-day break so you can let the content sink in (or meet with us individually) while enjoying the beach. For more information, please visit our website: StatsOnTheBeach.com
Please send a link to this announcement to anyone who might be interested, and let us know if you have any questions!
