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, Patrick

Yes, that's right.
