As part of CEDER’s suite of services, faculty member Matthew Diemer provides consultation to researchers (including students), prioritizing requests from the School of Education. This consultation can be provided when planning a grant or research project, before collecting data, or when analyzing data. Some requests might be resolved via email and others might require more than one 1:1 appointment. Please note that this service will not provide help overnight or the day before a deadline. Requests must be received at least one week before a deadline, at minimum. As this is an advisory and consultative service, data entry or data analyses will not be carried out for you – instead, advice and guidance about how to do so is provided.
Diemer can consult on a wide variety of issues, but is best suited to consult about survey design (selecting, formatting, administering, or developing measures), measurement issues (exploratory or confirmatory factor analysis, basic to intermediate item response theory analyses, testing for measurement bias via MIMIC models or measurement invariance testing), missing data (planned missing data designs, strategies for remedying missing data), and SEM analyses (cross-lagged panel models, reverse causality models, longitudinal SEM analyses, growth modeling approaches).
To arrange a consulting appointment, please respond to the following questions. After receiving your request, you will be contacted – either addressing your query via email or by setting up an in-person appointment.
