CARMA Summer Short Courses a Success
CARMA experts enjoying some time off from summer Short Courses in Detroit.
The Consortium for the Advancement of Research Methods and Analysis (CARMA) held Short Courses at Wayne State University in Detroit during the first week of June 2017. Ten renowned faculty conducted 12 courses in two sessions over six days covering various research topics. Courses provided attendees with a strong grounding in research methods and analysis by experts in the field. Some courses focused on different modules to break down the content, others provided examples for analysis with various software packages, and as always, best practices were emphasized.

The first set of courses this year, were held June 5-7. Session I set the tone for the week and was comprised of six courses:
· Introduction to Structural Equation Methods – Dr. Larry Williams (CARMA)
· Advanced SEM I: Measurement Invariance, Latent Growth Modeling & Nonrecursive Modeling – Dr. Robert Vandenberg (University of Georgia)
· Introduction to Multilevel Analysis – Dr. James LeBreton (Pennsylvania State University)
· Introduction to R – Dr. Scott Tonidandel (Davidson College)
· Intro to Big Data and Data Mining with R – Dr. Jeff Stanton (Syracuse University)
· Intermediate Regression: Multivariate/Logistic, Mediation/Moderation – Dr. Ron Landis (Illinois Institute of Technology)
 
On the following dates of June 8-10, Session II continued with a more advanced offering and also featured six courses:
· Intermediate SEM: Model Evaluation – Dr. Larry Williams (CARMA)
· Advanced SEM II: Missing Data Issue in SEM, Multi-Level SEM and Latent Interactions – Dr. Robert Vandenberg (University of Georgia)
· Advanced Multilevel Analysis –Dr. Paul Bliese (University of South Carolina)
· Multivariate Statistics with R – Dr. Steve Culpepper (University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign)
· Analysis of Big Data – Dr. Fred Oswald (Rice University)
· Advanced Regression: Alternatives to Difference Scores, Polynomial and Response Surface Methods – Lisa Lambert (Georgia State University)

More than 110 people from 57 institutions attended each of the two sessions. This year Big 10 schools included Michigan State, Purdue University, the Universities of Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska and Penn State. The entire list of institutions is as follows:

Auburn University Simon Fraser University
Bowling Green State University Texas A&M University
Carnegie Mellon University Texas Tech University
Case Western Reserve University Tulane University
Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center Tweddle Group
Clemson University University of Alberta
Colorado State University University of Calgary
Concordia University University of Cincinnati
Cornell University University of Georgia
CSRA University of Guelph
Eastern Michigan University University of Illinois at Chicago
Florida State University University of Iowa
