Register for our ESM data analysis course

In studies using intensive data collection techniques, such as ESM and Ecological Momentary Assessment (EMA), participants are asked to respond to a questionnaire several times a day, usually over several days. Such data collection techniques yield a large number of repeated measures with multiple variables per individual. Multilevel (mixed-effects) models are usually the preferred method for analyzing such data.

During this three-day course, you will be given tools to analyze intensive longitudinal data with suitable mixed-effects models. The course consists of a mix of lectures and computer exercises. We will not only cover the theoretical background, but also provide practical tools and practice in analyzing real ESM datasets using one or more software packages.

The universities are collaborating to increase knowledge about ESM in mental health research. During the annual closed meeting of the network, experts from the participating universities come together to exchange expertise, explore and shape cooperation, and work on joined products. Current joined projects of the expert network are presented on the website.
