Jim Bovaird, director of the Nebraska Academy for Methodology, Analytics and Psychometrics, leads the second Fall 2020 Methodology Applications Series presentation.

Bovaird's presentation discusses methodological possibilities and psychometric considerations of the proximal and distal influences of multiple interacting systems in our environments.

Particular attention is given to operationalizing contexts, validating latent measures of context and its effects, and disentangling the context from the individual.
