Dear Dr. Muthen,
I have two repeated factor in a MIMIC type model where I constrained the factor loading and threshhold for items across the two repeated factors. However, I am not sure which section in the mod(all) output I can check if the threshhold are invariant across waves.
That shows that the growth model doesn't fit. If you had many time points and say one such time point needed the mean deviation from the growth curve, that might have been defensible, but with only 3 time points to begin with it is not defensible.
