Literacy In The First Three Years Of School : A Longitudinal Investigation, Marion Meiers, Siek Toon Khoo Jul 2011

Literacy In The First Three Years Of School : A Longitudinal Investigation, Marion Meiers, Siek Toon Khoo

Dr Siek Toon Khoo

The ACER Longitudinal Literacy and Numeracy Study (LLANS) was designed to follow the growth in literacy and numeracy of a single cohort of students across the years of primary school. A sample of 1000 students in 100 schools formed the cohort for the study, which commenced in 1999. A linked set of literacy assessment tasks focused on key aspects of literacy was developed for the LLANS. Assessment data collected across the years of primary school provided information needed to construct a long LLANS literacy scale covering the full range of proficiency. The scale was used to measure change and track ...


Analysing Hierarchical Data With Multivariate Outcomes: Beyond Multilevel Regression Models, Siek Khoo Nov 2006

Analysing Hierarchical Data With Multivariate Outcomes: Beyond Multilevel Regression Models, Siek Khoo

Dr Siek Toon Khoo

Multilevel regression models are now well established and widely applied in analyses of hierarchical data – typically to account for variation in only one univariate response variable at level 1. However, many substantive research questions call for more complex models. For the analyses of hierarchical data with multivariate outcomes, multilevel mean and covariance structure modelling in the structural equation modelling framework offers great flexibility and modelling opportunities. This paper describes the basic concepts of two-level mean and covariance structure analysis of hierarchical data, and showcases application examples. The paper focuses on fitting possible models requiring multilevel applications and highlight: (a) the ...
