I have longitudinal data of students nested within groups. I want to estimate random linear growth for each student and predict growth from student factors. However, I want the predictors of student growth to be latent factors each measured by 4 to 8 items.

Is it possible to specify such a model in MPLUS?

You can obtain factor scores for the growth factors in a random effects growth model for each observation using the FSCORES option of the SAVEDATA command. I think this is what you are asking.
