I would like to know whether for a multilevel
structural equation modeling with binary and/or ordered categorical indicator variables, Latent scores for individuals are available.

Yes. You would obtain them using the FSCORES option of the SAVEDATA command.

See Technical Appendix 11 which is on the website.

Dear Bengt and Linda,

Despite searching the website using the available search term and going to the technical appendix page, i am not able to deduce which document "technical appendix 11" is. The 11th technical appendix counting down is "Equality test of means..." Which technical appendix is number 11? The 12th Technical appendix would seem more applicable?

Thanks in advance,

The one called Technical Appendix 11 when you click on the statement below:

Click here for the technical appendices covering theory behind Mplus through Version 2.

It is the first sentence under Technical Appendices.
