Q: What are the
prerequisites for this workshop?
workshop is for researchers, not statisticians. That being said, you’ll
get the most from this workshop if you have a MINIMUM of at
least two statistics classes—an intro class, and a class that contains
multiple regression or Analysis of Variance (ANOVA).
are a “beginner,” you may have trouble keeping up. However, if you’ve
had one statistics class, but are working on regression and are
confused, this workshop will be helpful.
Q: I haven't
taken a statistics course in years. Will I be able to keep up?
long as you have the suggested prerequisites, you should be fine. We
know you don’t spend all day, every day, running regression analyses!
However, you WILL need to spend some time each week, both going over
the training material and “getting your hands dirty” with some data.
Expect to spend 2-3 hours per module reviewing the concepts and doing
exercises, and re-running class examples on your own.
And if you have questions during the workshop, make sure to attend the
Q&A sessions and/or post on the Workshop Center to clarify anything
you’re not clear on.

Q: Things are very busy at work right now, and I’m afraid I
won’t have time to keep up. How much time per week does this really
We’ve worked hard to make sure people can take a workshop in the midst
of their normal work life.
Each workshop training session is 1.5
hours, whether you attend live or listen to the recording.
Each week we have a one-hour Q&A
session. You don’t have to attend, we just make those available so you
can have any questions answered or listen in on others’ questions.
We provide exercises, answers and data
sets, so you can practice what you’ve learned each week and get help in
the Q&As. These will take you a few hours each module, up to 2
or so. The exercises aren’t required—you’re not graded. But we’ve
gotten feedback that they’re very helpful, as it allows you to practice
and figure out what you did and didn’t understand.
In other words, each week, there are
approximately 3 hours of instruction, one hour of Q&A, and about 4
hours of practice time. So if you have a crazy hectic week during
the workshop, you have catch up time. But If you have a crazy hectic
month, you may be better off waiting as you won’t really have a chance
to catch up.
One reminder: You have access to the
workshop website, all materials, and a place to ask questions for a
year. So if you get behind, you aren’t missing out. You can catch up on
Q: I teach/work/sleep during this time and cannot attend
live. Is there any way to register and access the webinar sessions
Yes! We have participants from many time zones with many different work
schedules. In order to support our diverse student base, all modules –
including the workshop sessions and Q&As — are recorded and made
available to students within 48 hours. They’re screenshot video files,
so you’ll hear the instructor talking and see her screen, just as live
participants do. You can even submit questions for written answers any
time between sessions. Many students take the entire workshop in this
manner, never attending a session live.
Q: I’m outside the U.S. Can I still participate?
Yes. We have participants in our workshops from many different
countries. You will want a fast internet connection and either a
computer speaker or a telephone if you plan to attend live.
Q: Can I pay with Paypal?
you check out, you can pay directly using our system or paying with
Paypal. However, the three-payment option is not available using PayPal.
Q: Can I join
the Q&A webinars from my tablet or phone?
Yes. You can join all webinar sessions
from your Apple or Android device by downloading a free GoToMeeting
app. A phone might be too small to see the details of tables, however,
so we recommend a bigger screen.
really isn’t a good time for me. Will you be offering this workshop
We don't have a set schedule for running
each workshop. We try to schedule each workshop every 12-18 months,
though very popular workshops may be offered more often. We are
sometimes unable to re-run a workshop if the instructor becomes
unavailable so there are no guarantees that any workshop will be run
If you think you'll need the material in the next half-year or so, I
would suggest registering now. You’ll get all the materials to download
and review at your convenience, and you can attend again for free any
time in the next 12 months.
