I have estimtated a linear growth curve model and am now regressing a nominal variable on to the random slope. How do I interpret the direction of the probit coefficients if the mean of the slope growth factor is negative. That is to say, the mean of the slope paramter is -.04 and the probit regression of observed category 1 on to the slope growth factor is -5.178. Just in terms of the direction of this relationship, should I interpret it to mean that, as scores on the slope variable increase (i.e. become positive), the probability of being in category 1 of the dependent variable decrease? Thanks,

Yes, that's right.
