|Introduction to Finite Mixture Models
FMM 2013 Workshop
8:30am - 4:30pm Daily,
Benjamin Banneker Room, Adele H Stamp Student Union, University of Maryland, College Park
|This three-day course is intended as both a theoretical and practical introduction to finite mixture modeling as it pertains to statistical methods regularly used in educational, behavioral, and social science research. An understanding of finite mixture modeling will be developed by relating it to participants' existing knowledge of traditional statistical methods (i.e., group comparison procedures, multiple regression for continuous and categorical outcomes, MANOVA); thus it is assumed that participants have exposure to multivariate statistical methods and analyses falling under the General Linear Model (GLM) umbrella. A participant's experience in this workshop will be further enhanced by additional prior coursework or experience with advanced modeling techniques such as longitudinal modeling, factor analysis, item response theory, structural equation modeling (SEM), and multilevel modeling.
