Date of last update: 1/19/2018  SEQUENCE WAS REVISED  QUESTION LINKS NOT SET UP. SOME SPECIFIC READINGS WILL CHANGE
Check back each week and refresh page before starting the week's readings.
NOTE ON ARTICLES UNDER READ. The readings under READ in the last column are archived in a content folder on Blackboard unless stated otherwise. You DO want to read each of those articles, and look at and write answers to the questions that are posed on the questions page.
NOTE ON BOOKS LISTED UNDER SUGGESTED MIMUHIE READ. These are suggested only. In past years, except for Luke, students have hated all the books assigned, and often found them daunting and/or confusing. Some of the books in this group are insanely expensive. I would rather you spend $75 on a 6 month student license for Stata/IC so you can spend more time with Stata and work at home, than the same amount of money on book(s) you are going to hate.
So: Do one of the suggested reads if you wish each week. Or not. If you want these texts, become friends with your favorite used book collator such as abebooks.com
ALTHOUGH IT IS NOT LISTED I do STRONGLY suggest you read Luke ( Luke, D. A. (2004). Multilevel Modeling. Thousand Oaks: Sage.) in the first couple of weeks of the semester. Students DO find this helpful. BTW it is FREE through the library front end; part of Sage "green" books
