REGISTER FOR EVENT In regression, we are often interested in an interaction, which is the modification of the effect of an independent variable by another. To understand the magnitude, direction, and significance of the interaction we need to decompose it into simple effects. Simple effects can be analyzed in three ways, by 1) testing each effect against zero, 2) testing differences among effects, and 3) visualizing each effect with graphs. This seminar will demonstrate how to do all three analyses…

REGISTER FOR EVENT Meta-analysis is the synthesis of results from previous studies.  It is used to increase power, obtain a better estimate of an effect size, and sometimes to resolve conflicting conclusions in the literature.  In this workshop, we will discuss how the data for a meta-analysis are collected and organized, as well as how such data are analyzed and graphed.  We will also discuss some of the limitations meta-analysis and what should be included in a meta-analysis for publication.…
