I got the following problem with an LCGA (4 classes and one covariate): The output is saying that my slope for class 1 is negative (-2.627), but the graph (estimated means)for this class is showing a positive slope. I don't understand how this can be?
I am an absolute beginner working with Mplus and it would be wonderful if you could help me. Thank you very much!!
In a conditional model, a model with covariates, the intercepts of the intercept and slope growth factors are estimated. In an unconditional model, a model without covariates, the means of the intercept and slope growth factors are estimated.

I would like to clarify what is the function of "specify value for variable" when plotting graphs with covariates? I am trying to plot seperate graphs for Males and Females. I checked the User Guide but it does not give detailed explaination about the function of each button. Are there resources that can help me better understand what I should be entering into those boxes when trying to plot my graphs with covariates?
