Is it possible to fit logistic (S-shaped) growth trajectories in Mplus?

Yes, if you give the fixed time scores for such a logistic curve shape. The model is then still linear in the growth factors. No, if you want to estimate a logistic curve where the growth factors (the random effects) enter non-linearly as is sometimes done in the literature.

Thanks for your quick response.
