I have a two level model. Some variables of my data are answered from teachers and they refer to ther principal. So I decided that those answers I must put on the between level. Do I need to specify the between level I mean BETWEEN IS l1 l2 l3.....or this is by default?. My data include different answers in the same school.
Be definition, the values of a between-level variable are the same for each cluster member.

Thank you for your reply, make sense what you mean, but the data of the leadership is on the school level. Is it possible to reccomend me something to do in order to use these data only to between part??? I am a little be confused...Next I add my code, my problem is with the variable on the between level l1 l2 l3 l4....
USEVARIABLES = sxoleio l2 l3 ...; CLUSTER IS school;
Small insignificant negative residual variances can be fixed at zero. Regression coefficients can be greater than one.

I have two queries: 1)is it possible to run and accept the standards error of a twolevel model having only models in between level keeping the within part clear but having in the model? 2)I get negative factor loadings at between level and positive at within and when I test impacts I get negative sign even in within part. Could a possible explanation be that ,between schools, teachers are dissatisfied with their job? My model is measured teachers' job satisfaction. Is this possible or do I make any mistake in the command?
