Can someone show me how to use these two new features in Mplus 7.3?

1. Deviance Information Criterion (DIC) for Bayesian analysis of two-level models with continuous outcomes
2. Posterior predictive p-values (PPP) for Bayesian analysis of two-level, three-level, and cross-classified models

Thank you very much!

DIC should be used like BIC for ML.

PPP is analogous to chi-square testing of overall model fit. A description is given in the paper on our website:

Dear Dr. Muthen,

I am using version 7.3 to do a Bayesian analysis of a two-level model with a continuous outcome. How do I obtain the Deviance Information Criterion? When I include TYPE = TWOLEVEL, I don't get the model fit statistics (when I run a one-level model I do).

Not implemented in 7.3.
