Course content

The course builds upon regression analysis, analysis of variance and principal component/factor analysis. In so doing, the course treats some advanced first-generation statistical analyses such as logistic regression, repeated measures and mixed design ANOVA that are commonly used in the field of psychology. Furthermore, the course provides a thorough introduction to a second-generation multivariate statistical analysis, namely the variance-based approach to structural equation modelling (i.e. PLS-SEM). In the treatment and presentation of these statistical analyses, the emphasis is put on a strong conceptual understanding as well as applications with the help of relevant statistical software.
