Intensive longitudinal methods, often called experience sampling, daily diary, or ecological momentary assessment methods, allow researchers to study peoples thoughts, emotions, and behaviors in their natural contexts. Typically they involve self-reports from individuals, dyads, families or other small groups over the course of hours, days, and weeks. Such data can reveal life as it is actually lived and provide insights that are not possible using conventional experimental or survey research methods.
Intensive longitudinal data, however, present data analytic challenges stemming from the multiple levels of analysis and temporal dependencies in the data. The multilevel or mixed-effects model for longitudinal data is a flexible analytic tool that can take account of these complexities, and the overarching goal of this 2-day seminar is to provide practical training in its applied use. Material for this workshop will be drawn from the presenters 2013 book, Intensive Longitudinal Methods: An Introduction to Diary and Experience Sampling Research.
