Further, both the multilevel and LGC approaches yield parameter estimates using FIML based upon all available information, assuming that missing data are MAR. The mutlilevel and LGC approaches are similar in that both provide estimates of individual differences and change in performance, and indeed can be structured to be equivalent and to yield identical estimates (Curran, 2003; Ghisletta & Lindenberger, 2004). However, important differences should also be noted. For example, time is treated differently between the multilevel and LGC models, introduced as a level 1 predictor yielding a fixed effect in the former case, and incorporated into the model via the factor loadings for the latent slope variable for the latter.

2012; Stawski, MacDonald, & Sliwinski, in press; Stawski, Smith, & MacDonald, 2015). Of particular note is the third point above— that the measurement burst design represents an invaluable methodological tool for the study of dynamic processes that unfold across both near- and long-term intervals, as well as how these processes influence one another (see related discussion in later section on intraindividual variability). As with standard longitudinal studies, the sampling timescale of the measurement burst design must be carefully matched to the particular aging process under study.

For example, a negative correlation between learning and forgetting reported at the between-participants level (those individuals who learned more will also forget less) does not guarantee that a similar negative association will be observed at the within-person level (for any given individual, learning information at a faster rate will be associated with a slower rate of forgetting over time). Such discrepancies have been long described by the ecological fallacy (Robinson, 1950), stating that mean (group-level) findings can differ in both magnitude and valence relative to individual results (Molenaar, 2004).
