Statistical Anaylsis Software
This webpage is strongly recommended. The table on this webpage lists all types of statistic analysis. The purpose of this webpage is to help people choose appropriate statistical method that fit with their data type, and teach people how to conduct the data analysis with SPSS, SAS and STATA.
Web Resources for SAS
Most of SAS documents,such as SAS language Reference, SAS procedures Guide, and the user's guide for some SAS products can be accessed on this website. You can know all information about basic tasks and concepts in SAS, such as SAS functions, statements, and procedures in particular operating environments.
It is the homepage of SAS Institute. Under the “support and training” labels,
you can find many links with which you can search solutions
to your problem; summit your problem to a SAS expert, read
the SUIG annual conference articles, find sample code in
the SAS sample library.
This is a SAS Listserv. You can communicate with the SAS users around the world. It is very helpful when you have a problem and need help from other SAS users.
It is a very good website. You can get SAS introduction movies, some ebooks about using SAS in regression, ANOVA. SAS code in some famous textbooks can also be found there.
SAS courses from basic level to intermediate level
Web Resources for SPSS
This is a personal website. The owner is a fantasy SPSS expert. He writes and collects many SPSS syntax. You will find that SPSS syntax is a tremendous plus to the point-and-click interface.
It is a very good website. You can get SPSS introduction movies, some ebooks about using SPSS in regression, ANOVA, or mixed models. SPSS code in some famous textbooks can also be found there. Additionally, you can find the answers to many frequently encountered questions about SPSS
There is an online SPSS course. The videos teach you how to do data analysis with SPSS point-and-click interface.
Web Resources for Structural Equation Modeling
This is also an excellent site on structural equation modeling. References to the most important structural equation modeling programs are included. There is also information on what structural equation modeling is and the structural equation modeling FAQ.
Some videos of the workshops about SEM are available, including “ Basic Concepts and Strategies”, “Statistical Inference for Causal Effects in Experiments and Observational Studies” .
This is the homepage of Dr. Newsom. You can find a 'complete' listing of all journal articles and chapters on structural equation models.
It is a mail list for all the SEM fans to communicate around the world
This page contains the streaming video of the lectures of the course Statistical Analysis with Latent Variables taught by Professor Bengt Muthen.
Web Resources for SEM software
This page contains the known packages currently available, their distributors, postal and e-mail addresses, and voice/fax phone numbers; links to WWW sites have been included, where available.
There is a video stream for a course about LISREL 8.53.
This page contains the material for an LISREL 8 workshop
This page contains the material for an AMOS workshop
This page contains the material for an Mplus workshop
Including common questions about Mplus and some code samples.
Web Resources for Multilevel Analysis
The multilevel mailing list is also a key general resource as it is searchable; it represents many years of accumulated questions and answers:
An inclusive website about multilevel analysis concepts and software use
Goldstein's classic text (in its 2 nd edition with corrections) on multilevel modelling can be downloaded from
Supplementary material for Snijders, T and Bosker, R (1999) Multilevel Analysis: An introduction to basic and advanced multilevel modelling (including updates and corrections, data sets used in examples, with set-ups for running the examples in MLwiN and in HLM, and an introduction to MLwiN) can be found at:
Joop Hox has some down-loadable example chapters from his textbook Multilevel Analysis: Techniques and Applications at
the complete contents of his 1995 Applied Multilevel Analysis , Amsterdam : TT-Publikaties is available
There is a completed lecture notes for a course on multilevel analysis
This page contain concept and background about HLM
Web Resources fort MultiLevel Analysis Software
This page contains the material about how to use HLM software
The UCLA HLM portal is more than a set of links about HLM or a search engine that allows you to search across these pages for information about HLM
Include some example analysis using Mlwin for multilevel analysis, Mulwin Manuel.
Here is a very interesting and helpful tool that visualizes the scoring procedure behind computer adaptive testing. You can try any kind of response and see the change of the test result. In addition, you can know the logic of CAT.
On this website, you can find some ebook or tutorial websites for IRT. In addition, it summarizes the free and charged IRT software
This is the homepage of IRT Modeling Lab in UIUC. It is a national famous IRT lab. It provide excellent materials about IRT theory and applications.
It is an introductory webpage about IRT.
