GPvam (3.0-5)

Maximum Likelihood Estimation of Multiple Membership Mixed Models Used in Value-Added Modeling.

An EM algorithm, Karl et al. (2013) , is used to estimate the generalized, variable, and complete persistence models, Mariano et al. (2010) . These are multiple-membership linear mixed models with teachers modeled as "G-side" effects and students modeled with either "G-side" or "R-side" effects.
