A Taste of Methodology: Analyzing Ambulatory Assessment Data
Faculty, do you want to explore new research methods, but find that you’re just too busy? Try A Taste of Methodology! A Taste of Methodology is a series of semiannual BRIEF workshops for faculty, with lunch included. The objective is to provide you with an efficient way to assess a methodological approach’s potential for your research. In this semester’s workshop, Michael Russell will introduce multilevel models for use with ambulatory assessment data like FitBit data, smartphone accelerometer data, and ecological momentary assessments. Michael will illustrate the application of these models using examples from research at Penn State.
This semester’s offering is
Analyzing Ambulatory Assessment Data Using Multilevel Modeling
PRESENTER: Michael Russell, Research Associate, The Methodology Center
DATE: May 3, 2017, 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
LOCATION: Bennett Pierce Living Center, 110 Henderson Building
The three-hour workshop will introduce
- the conceptualization of research questions in an ambulatory assessment framework,
- how to match each research question to the appropriate analytic technique, and
- the interpretation of multilevel model results.
Who should attend?
This workshop is targeted at faculty and postdoctoral researchers who are interested in the analysis of data from ambulatory assessment paradigms (e.g., daily diaries, ecological momentary assessments, and wearable device data) using multilevel modeling techniques in their research.
A Taste of Methodology is co-sponsored by the Social Science Research Institute and the Methodology Center, and is part of SSRI's Innovative Methods Initiative. The workshop is FREE and open to all Ph.D.-level scientists at Penn State. Registration is required and places are limited. Email Tammy Knepp (TLKnepp@psu.edu) to register or ask questions.
