SIG Chair

Dear MLM SIG Members,

My name is Yu-Yu Hsiao (University of New Mexico), and it is my pleasure to serve as chair of the Multilevel Modeling SIG for the 2022-2023 term.  I would like to give very special thanks to our former chairs, who have devoted much time and energy to coordinating the previous MLM SIG sessions at the AERA. 

To contribute to a successful conference and move knowledge on MLM forward, I sincerely invite all of you to submit your research proposals to the MLM SIG.

How to submit your papers to the MLM SIG?  The MLM SIG aims to promote the development and use of Multilevel Modeling techniques; therefore, we welcome any research paper using the MLM analytical method, including manuscripts in methodological and applied areas.  The deadline for submissions is July 27, 2022

We solicit proposals on a range of topics related to MLM:

1.     All types of multilevel models (e.g., ANOVAs, multilevel regression (HLM), Multilevel SEM, IRT, factor analysis, growth, mixture, and cross-classified).

2.     Multilevel optimal design (e.g., cluster randomized designs, statistical power, sample size, effect size, and sampling weights).

3.     Causal methods for observational data with multilevel models (e.g., propensity score, instrumental variable, and regression discontinuity methods).

4.     Evaluation research with multilevel models (e.g., mediation, school effectiveness, and value-added modeling).

5.     Estimation strategies for multilevel models (e.g., Bayesian, ML, and WSL).

6.     Multilevel model assessment (e.g., model assumptions, outliers, missing values, and goodness of fit).

I look forward to seeing your proposals and meeting you at the annual meeting in Chicago!
