We will review: (1) taxometrics; (2) exploratory latent profile analysis; (3) exploratory factor analysis; (4) confirmatory factor analysis; (5) invariance testing and differential item functioning analysis; and (6) higher-order factor and bifactor modeling.

Saturday, February 9, 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Speakers: Alexander Etz, UC Irvine; Johnny von Doorn, Univ. of Amsterdam; Quentin Gronau, Univ. of Amsterdam
This workshop will provide attendees with a friendly, gentle introduction to Bayesian statistics, as well as demonstrate how to perform Bayesian analyses using JASP statistical software. Attendees will come away understanding the "why" and "how" of Bayesian estimation and hypothesis testing. This workshop is relevant to any student or researcher who wishes to draw conclusions from empirical data.

Saturday, February 9, 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Speaker: Samantha Anderson, Arizona State Univ.
This workshop will cover sample size planning techniques when the goal is to achieve an adequately powered study. In addition to the conceptual and mathematical foundations of statistical power, attendees will learn about two major types of sample size planning for statistical power. Attendees will also receive hands-on training in conducting sample size planning using freely available software.

Saturday, February 9, 2:15 PM - 5:15 PM
Room: (MM) A601
Speaker: Amanda Montoya, UCLA
This workshop provides and interactive introduction to mediation analysis for a variety of multilevel designs starting with a simple two-condition within subjects design. I will demonstrate implementation (using two freely available tools for SPSS and SAS) and interpretation for questions of mediation in these designs. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring laptops with SPSS or SAS.

Saturday, February 9, 2:15 PM - 6:15 PM
Speakers: Jessica Kosie, Univ. of Oregon; Sara Weston, Northwestern Univ.
In recent years, a variety of free tools have gained in popularity, making reproducible research practices easier. The goal of this workshop is to provide training to interested researchers so that they can begin using these tools in their own work. Topics to be covered include: basic R, tidyverse, ggplot, and an intro to writing papers in RMarkdown. No previous programming experience is required.
