My apologies for this question. I am new to this type of analysis.

I am studying four students. Examining changes in mathematical cognition over time and fact retrieval following an authentic time lapse in instruction. The students will be tested at four times over the course of the year. The data sources are at home videos created by the students as they think aloud while working on mathematics.

I would like to use latent growth curve analysis as the statistical tool for analysis. I am not clear on whether this small sample size would make this inappropriate or whether there is a better choice.

I would like to examine changes over time in these students' mathematical thinking.

Thanks in advance.

This is a very small sample. It might be better to look at these four students qualitatively.
