    The goal a) Introducing students: - to concepts and operators which are necessary for understanding complex latent (structural and dynamic) relations among psychic phenomena and processes - to algorithms and programs which enable performing basic multivariate statistical procedures b) Train students: - to choose methods of statistical supports for the complex research plots referring to the latent space - to interpret results of the multivariate analyses on their own - to make decisions based on the multivariate analyses’ results
    The outcome At the end of this course, students are expected to be prepared: - to choose adequate statistical methods of the multivariate analysis for supporting the problems typical for psychology investigations - to carry out multivariate data analyses using the specified statistical programs - to interpret results of the multivariate data analyses
