Glossary of statistical terms
A Correlation matrix describes correlation among M variables. It is a square symmetrical MxM matrix with the (ij)th element equal to the correlation coefficient r_ij between the (i)th and the (j)th variable. The diagonal elements (correlations of variables with themselves) are always equal to 1.00.

This course provides an easy introduction to ANOVA and multiple linear regression through a series of practical applications.
In this course you will learn how multiple linear regression models are derived, use software to implement them, learn what assumptions underlie the models, learn how to test whether your data meet those assumptions and what can be done when those assumptions are not met, and develop strategies for building and understanding useful models.
This course covers key multivariate procedures such as multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA), principal components, factor analysis and classification.
This course covers the fundamental concepts and theory of Structural Equation Modeling: model specification, model identification, model estimation, model testing, and model modification. Reading assignments, examples and exercises are included using the LISREL software package.
