I'm trying to obtain plausible values for an intercept and slope of a growth curve with individually-varying times of observation.

I tried using tscores and type=random, but this then over-rides the estimator-bayes command and I don't get the plausible values.

As a compromise, since my times of observation don't vary massively, I've set the times of observation to the mean at each measurement point, but is there another way to do this that would incorporate the individually-varying observation times?

Thanks, MG

No. You need TYPE=RANDOM for individually-varying times of observation and this is not available with ESTIMATOR=BAYES.
