q#1: can you name a reference for the twolevel model in ex9.28 where the within-group residual variance varies between-groups?

q#2: In Mplus, would also be possible to predict individual differences in the residual variance (e.g. a twolevel model with pupils in schools examining if the variance in mathachievement is signifincantly larger for boys as compared to girls)?

Thank you for your reply!

Q1: The reference is on our website:

Asparouhov, T., Hamaker, E.L. & Muthen, B. (2017). Dynamic structural equation models. Technical Report. Version 2. (Download Mplus analyses)

although that is for the more general model with auto-regression. Hedeker as well as Goldstein have also written about this.

Q2. Ex 9.28 shows an example of this where w can represent gender.
