I'm looking to conceptualize a basic multi-level regression model and am asking for guidance on which standardized output option to use, 'stdyx' or 'stdy,' given my situation.
Here is the basic layout: I want to examine adversity (# of adverse events) as a predictor of memory (a continuous score) controlling for basic covariates in a sample of children/siblings clustered within families. The children (and their families) also come from 2 different distinct cohorts.

Thanks Bengt, quick follow-up to see if I have it right:
So for my example model I shared with both continuous and dichotomous predictors at both within and between levels, should I run the model both ways?
Once with STDYX to report the results for the continuous predictors, and then again but with STDY for the results for the binary ones? In that case, which one (STDYX or STDY) would I use to report all the effects in the 'between' model?
