EDUC 259X: Application of Hierarchical Linear Models in Behavioral and Social Research
The fundamental phenomenon of interest in educational research is the growth in knowledge and skills of individual students. Two facts  that children's growth is typically the object of inquiry and that such growth occurs in organizational settings  correspond to two of the most troublesome and persistent methodological problems in the social sciences: the measurement of change and the assessment of multilevel effects (also referred to as the unit of analysis problem). Although these two methodological problems have distinct, longstanding, and nonoverlapping literatures, these problems, in fact, share a common cause  the inadequacy of traditional statistical techniques for the modeling of hierarchy.
