Schedule Number: 005864

Time and Location: Weds 6:00-9:00 Willard Building 071
Prerequisites: Familiarity with multiple linear regression and logistic regression

Course Description: This course will provide students with conceptual and methodological overview of analytic techniques for ambulatory assessment data. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to conceptualize research questions in an ambulatory assessment framework, match the appropriate analytic technique to the research question, and interpret model results. Each class will consist of a didactic component followed by a laboratory exercise in which students will be able to apply the techniques they have learned. Students will be graded on in-class participation, completion of lab assignments, and a short research paper. The research paper will be based on an ambulatory assessment analysis project that each student will conceptualize, with the guidance of the instructor, and develop as the course goes on. The syllabus will list journal article and book chapter readings for each week that will be relevant to material presented in class and will serve as valuable resources in the future. Students will also be provided with sample SAS code that will serve as a reference for future analyses with ambulatory assessment data.
