TVEM Teachers’ Corner Contents
Two introductory articles about time-varying effect modeling (TVEM) have been provided for instructors. These articles were chosen to give instructors enough background so that they may guide students to identify types of research questions addressable using TVEM and to determine whether data are suitable for use with TVEM. For some courses, instructors may choose to distribute these articles to students for review prior to the discussion.
