Overview of Longitudinal Models and Analyses
Keywords: research methods, longitudinal models and analyses
Abstract: Much of organizational research is arguably about causal processes of change even as many theories and analyses of change are deficient in the extent to which they specify or test temporal changes. Each approach for modeling and measuring change embodies a set of assumptions about what change is, what constitutes evidence of change, and some methods are oblivious to evidence of other types of change. This workshop is an overview of longitudinal models including how to properly specify a theory regarding change over time, designs for collecting longitudinal data, as well as introducing multiple approaches for analyzing longitudinal data.
