Wayzata High School Class of 1997- Our 20 Year Reunion
Event on 2017-07-28 19:00:00
In 1997…………… The first color photograph appears on the front page of the New York Times, Tiger Woods at 21 years old became the youngest golfer to win the Masters, Mike Tyson Bites Evander Holyfield's ear during a match, OJ Simpson, The first Harry Potter book was published, Notorious B.I.G. shot and killed in drive by shooting, Titanic, Spice Girls, Hanson, Elton John, Puff Daddy, Jewel, R Kelly…….. It might not have been a perfect year… but it was our year. Let’s get together…… Friday, July 28 th at 7:00pm at The Wayzata Country Club.Tickets for Friday night's festivities are /each if purchased in advance or /each cash at the door and include heavy appetizers, non-alcoholic beverages and music. There are a limited number of tickets available, so get them early!Note: Cash bar only. Wayzata Country Club will allow people to charge their Wayzata Country Club and reciprocal country club accounts for bar charges only. There is no ATM at Wayzata Country Club, so come prepared! —————————— Accommodations: A block of rooms has been reserved at the Country Inn & Suites in Plymouth for 7/28-7/30. Reference Wayzata High School 20 Year Reunion when calling. The fine print: No ticket refunds. Any profit made from reunion ticket sales will be donated. ——————————- FAQs What should I wear? Dress is casual but always a good dress up is fun too. While there's no exact dress code, the 20-teens are decidedly more pulled together than the 90s were. Is there really a "limited number of tickets available”? and why? Yes, due to capacity issues at WCC. We are coming up with contingency plans in case our class decides to represent in a much bigger way than those years before us. What about people who aren’t on FB? We’re tapping into our own networks to get in touch with as many people as possible, but we really don't have any other way of reaching people without spending our days Googling 300 people, so if you know of others not on fb and have a way of contacting them, please send them the link! We'd love to see as many faces as possible. You may even recognize some of them without the name tags. Can I bring my spouse/partner/friend? Sure! Many people prefer to attend solo so they don't have to worry about entertaining someone while they relive their glory days but others prefer the built in company. Totally up to you. Just remember to tell us their name when you register— oh, and they cost , too. How can I help?Just send an email to wayzataclassof97@gmail.com and let us know you're interested in helping. As we get closer, the committee will identify tasks for which we could use a helping hand. We pinky promise we'll shoot a note when the time comes. Will there be vegetarian and gluten-free food options?Duh. This is 2017, not 1997—we’ve taken in consideration dietary restrictions. Unless of course you’re into a macrobiotic raw diet, then you’re on your own. RESTRICTIONS No ticket refunds. Any profit made from reunion ticket sales will be donated to the Wayzata Public Schools Education Foundation. Reunion Ticket – .00

methods@manchester Summer School: Factor Analysis for Integrated Mixed Methods Research

methods@manchester Summer School: Factor Analysis for Integrated Mixed Methods Research
Event on 2017-07-03 13:00:00

This summer school helps you apply Factor Analysis to make a scale or index using statistical software. There is a part focus on mixed-methods research contexts. We cover these topics: – factor analysis using confirmatory methods, latent factor analysis within structural equation modelling; methods of using qualitative data to strengthen an argument and make the analysis rigorous and transparent. The school offers unique new training, developed specifically for this outlet.

This one-week event involves 28 hours of contact time of which about 5-6 hours are computer practicals led by the experienced tutor, Wendy Olsen, using SPSS and STATA.

The computer practicals for factor analysis include applications of SPSS AMOS which has a graphical interface (nice pathway diagrams), STATA SEM.

There is 7/16 overlap with a mixed-methods training stream so that you can see how interviews or discourse analysis fit well with factor anlaysis of attitudes. This also helps with comparative cross-country studies of attitudes and norms.

The summer school provides a good underpinning to your statistical and survey research.

The course involves lectures, active learning and a project. Each day up to two lectures and one ‘lectorial’ occur. A lectorial is active learning led from the front with guided small group work. The project is individually done and will lead to the creation of a poster display with hot links. Participants may want to bring their own laptops (but it’s optional).

Course Objectives

The aims of the course are:

To examine seminal papers using mixed methods and discuss rigour in comparative research. To introduce the idea of measurement error and measurement models, and contrast confirmatory with exploratory factor analysis. To use STATA and SPSS AMOS, and some students may use MPLUS. Both STATA and SPSS AMOS have graphical windows for planning a factor analysis model. To examine latent factor histograms and scattergrams, and interpret them from sociological and social-theory angles. To apply factor analysis. To Practice making presentations using students’ own data and well-constructed logical arguments. To practice debating-format and/or panel discussion about knowledge construction. Course team

This course will be presented by Wendy Olsen.

Wendy Olsen joined Manchester University in 2002 and is Professor of Socio-Economics. She worked till 2014 both for the Institute for Development Policy and Management (IDPM) and in the Discipline of Social Statistics. She is Director of the MSc in Social Research Methods & Statistics degree programme in Social Sciences (http://documents.manchester.ac.uk/DocuInfo.aspx?DocID=24892). She has previously taught sociology, development economics, and research methodology. She teaches statistics and PhD research methodology as well as computerised qualitative data analysis, the comparative method, the case-study method, and topics in political economy (e.g. child labour in India). She has release from some of her teaching duties due to research projects (see . She is fostering the use of mixed-methods research among statistical and other researchers.

Course requirements

Students will gain most if they already tried regression or used microdata once or twice before. They should already be familiar with SPSS or STATA but not necessarily both. Full guidance will be given about using the software. Sample programmes will be supplied, making it easier to use the software.
