The unconditional, single group LGM showed a positive trend for children's experience of ECEC quality over time.
Multiple group analysis of the unconditional LGM showed that the low group is significantly different from the middle and high SES groups for all three measures from the CLASS at the start of the study (intercept growth factor).
Specifically, this study applied a multilevel latent growth modelling (multilevel LGM) in which a) the shape of each student's individual growth trajectory was estimated; b) the inter-individual change was examined (the examination on whether a growth trajectory between individuals differ across time); and c) the differences of students within each class was compared to students in other classes.
A multilevel LGM approach was used that estimates the initial levels of the change trajectories of the studied variables (Intercept) and a linear, quadratic, and cubic growth over time in these trajectories (Slope, Quadratic, and Cubic factors) and separately considers average levels in these trajectories estimated on the full sample from the inter-individual variability around these average levels (Duncan et al., 1999).
For two consecutive years, LGMS

Of course, LGMs
can have three main causes: failure to extend the gear, mechanical issues or improper retraction once on the ground.
In working with linear LGMs
, two parameters describe the trajectory as observed for each individual child: (a) an intercept term representing initial status on externalizing behavioural difficulties (each child's 1994 score in the current example), and (b) a slope term representing the rate of change on the behavioural scale in moving from one cycle to the next over 1994-2000.
As there was an insignificant difference in hopelessness over the three times, we fixed the mean of hopelessness as a variable when constructing the following LGM
(Liu & Meng, 2003).
Latent growth curve modeling (LGM
) resembles classic confirmatory factor analysis.
