I am testing a model where I have one level 1 predictor, one level 2 predictor, with a level 2 outcome. Is it possible to run MLM with random intercept and random slope with a level 2 outcome involving a cross-level interaction? Thanks.
I don't understand which model you are after. Perhaps you can write it out in formulas. A cross-level interaction implies that you have one exogeneous variable on level 1 and one exogenous variable on level 2 and their product influences the outcome which varies across both levels. This happens in a model with a random slope defined in a level-1 regression where the slope varies across the units on level 2.
A cross-level interaction is not a model where you have a random slope defined on level 2 - for that you would need a third level.
