This 3 day course has been exceptionally well delivered by an active researcher who is extremely knowledgeable, patient and thoughtful to the needs of the audience. I particularly enjoyed the blend between lecture material and practical skills development using MPlus, supported by excellent handout material and supporting electronic files. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is new to MPlus.
Honestly, I loved it. If someone asked me if I would recommend the experience I would say yes, definitely. I started without any knowledge about Mplus and in just three sessions I came out with many ideas to apply to my own research. I think the organization of the course was perfect. The explanations were always clear, with numerous examples. A subject as arduous as statistics was easy to understand. To this also contributed the fact that they made breaks every hour and quarter!
This is the best course I have ever taken – Gabriela makes these complex and advanced techniques simple and easily digestible, prepare to learn a great deal and have a lot of fun doing it!
It was so incredibly helpful and I actually feel as though you gave me a very important gift in my career. I have many skills as a researcher but never saw complex methods as something that would be accessible to me. I had always seen statistics as something to be feared and struggled with but your course actually gave me the most wonderful enthusiasm and excitement about working with my data. It’s made me so much more confident going forward and I will be forever grateful for that. I have had so many ideas since your course that it’s hard to focus on just one.
This MPlus course was fantastic. It not only provided me with the skills and confidence to conduct the analyses in MPlus but, also, the details of why, how, and what the analyses were about. Furthermore, I now know how to read and interpret the output files to assess and modify my models.
I attended the Structural Equation Modeling with Mplus course this autumn and found it very helpful. Gabriela explains and illustrates statistical models and Mplus programming in ways that ensures understanding, practical knowledge, and interpretation of the results. Her pedagogical ways in teaching are extraordinary and she explains difficult topics very well and ensures integrated understanding from the audience. The course, with good theoretical introductions and examples, ensures that every participant will progress in practice and understanding throughout the course.
Mplus course in Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) is truly unique. The course offers important topics about SEM and factor analysis that are all taught by a wonderfully supportive instructor who made me love statistics, even more; especially that it was not taught in a technical way. All the examples that were used made it easy to understand the statistics behind it. I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who is interested in statistics and looking to gain the essential skills needed for their academic careers, including graduates and researchers from different fields.
I did three courses in SEM in different UK universities last year, and this is by far the best. This course is pragmatic, it teaches you what you need without dwelling into complex mathematical explanations but at the same time, the basics are covered so you can be confident you will do your analysis rigorously.
The Mplus course is practical oriented. Many useful and helpful examples are provided in a cooperative atmosphere. And I really enjoyed the group atmosphere of the course.
