Hi all,

I am new to Mplus. Below link is my model.


I am wondering which UG chapter I should follow to run this SEM. By analyzing single level data, I could simply create three interaction terms and run hierarchical multiple regression to analyze this model. But given that IV is at level two, where should I start with? Thank you for your help in advance!

So your X is a level-2 variable? What about the M's and Y?

Yes. X is level 2, and all others are level 1.

Then M1, M2 and M3 are latent variables on level 2 representing between-level variation in those variables. So you would use XWITH on level 2 to capture their interactions with X.
