MixWILD - Mixed models With Intensive Longitudinal Data

Mixed-WILD is a statistical software designed to perform multilevel modeling (with mixed effects) on longitudinal experience sampling data. Analysing intensive longitudinal data from EMA is a challenging task and the currently available desktop applications are often insufficient for this purpose. Using Mix-WILD, behavioral researchers with no background in programming (e.g., R) can perform complex modeling on personal health data.

Running a .exe file

  1. Please go to downloads folder of the bitbucket and click on the latest version of MixWILD-X.0.exe
  2. Once downloaded, click “Open”, then hit “Run”
  3. For the first time users, it will install the application and then run

Important instructions

  1. If using a Windows PC, please ensure that your Java is up to date.
  2. When creating an issue related to the UI, we encourage you to include screenshots and log files.
  3. When including an issue related to NULL values in the def file, it will be best if you can share the .def file as well as include a screenshot of the model window.
