In an effort to continually improve our instruction we obtain student evaluations with each course offering. Here is a sample of reviews from our prior 2020 online offering of Multilevel Modeling:
Thank you for such an amazing workshop! I learned so much and cannot wait to dig into my dissertation data!
The concepts and practical applications are hard for me, but in this class I really felt like I’ve had some Eureka moments. It really came together for me. I think that speaks to both of your teaching abilities, the format of the class, and the organization of the materials. I love the dynamic between you two and your teaching styles complement each other well. I had a blast, a really good time, and loved it.
Everything is a strength -- balance between lecture/practical, the pace at which the material is delivered, the course material/resources, etc. Really just everything.
The workshop does a great job of explaining MLM on a conceptual level and provides useful examples to better understand the modeling. The instructors were great at teaching the material and were very open to answering questions.
This workshop strikes a perfect balance between theory and practical applications. I particularly appreciated this as my MLM grad class was several years ago, so this was a refresher and an extension now that I have the data to actually analyze.
I appreciate that both Dan and Patrick explained everything in a very understandable way, regardless of your statistical knowledge and background. The examples provided throughout the lectures were extremely helpful too.
The instructors are highly skilled in clearly conveying complex concepts in very accessible manner. Coverage of the material on the topic was extremely thorough and useful. The SAS afternoon sessions were fantastic.
Clarity! Excellent instructors were able to scaffold the material in a helpful, comprehensible manner. I was very impressed with how well everything worked via Zoom, particularly since this was the first entirely-online season.
Such an excellent training opportunity! After taking this course, I feel much more confident in my ability to develop models for my dissertation.
The ability of both presenters to communicate important statistical and research concepts in clear, understandable language. After enduring a number of undergraduate and graduate level statistics courses this one was the first that felt accessible.
Really, really helpful!! I am a graduate student and managed to convince my department to let me use my travel funds this year to enroll in this class. The lectures and demos are so refreshingly clear, I would have paid out of pocket!
This was a fantastic workshop. I am a second-year graduate student and have only taken one semester of statistics so far, and found that Patrick and Dan presented this challenging material in an accessible, fun and engaging way.
The applied, practical focus and many real-world examples were key strengths. Also, the notes for the syntax were phenomenal! I really appreciate the time taken to annotate the code so well.
This training was the best thing to happen to me during my dissertation - a life saver! I am infinitely grateful.
Both instructors are SO knowledgeable. I have taken courses on MLM before and you still offered a lot more. I also learned some tricks (e.g., entering the group means when centering) that were so helpful and clarified materials I have struggled with.
