* Example 9.13 more Questions. [Q1] In example 9.13, the basic assumption is logistic Regression, right? [Q2] If we see the title in ex9.13, they say Twolevel Growth modeling (3level analysis). This is the same name both of them: twolevel Growth modeling = 3level modeling The model is like this? Y*_tij = Pie_oij +Pie_1ij*a_1tij+Pie_2tij*a_2tij +error_tij Ex9.13 model is also this kind of model, right? [Q3] In handout (Multilevel model), I see this context. The threelevel analysis (Mplus considers within and between) => Meaning is to consider and to calculate value both level 1(within) and level 2(within) in Mplus. => Also to calculate the level 3(between) value in Mplus Thank you so much.

1. Yes 2. Yes, the model has 3 levels, which Mplus reduces to 2 by its multivariate approach to handling the repeated measures over time. The 2 levels are Within (capturing variation across time and across people) and Between (capturing variation across clusters such as schools). 3. Yes  see my answer to 2.
