The Quantitative Methods Hub at the Department of Education, University of Oxford, offers its Advanced Quantitative Methods Summer School, this year consisting of seven different on-line courses running during three calendar weeks in May (in Oxford parlance these are called weeks 2, 3 and 4 of Trinity Term; 4-21/5/2021).

The courses require a basic understanding of multiple regression modelling or other multivariate techniques. Students and staff are welcome to attend one, some or all days by signing up using this portal

The courses will take place online, and include a mixture of pre-recorded lectures and demonstrations, synchronous lectures, workshops and questions & answer sessions. Synchronous session sessions will run in zoom. Links to materials and zoom-sessions will be sent to participants. You will use R-studio and various R-modules, and Mplus (Mplus demo) during the courses. The teaching format will vary slightly from course to course (please see details for each course below).
