Most cognitive diagnostic models are unilevel. This study develops a multilevel version of the log-linear cognitive diagnosis model. The simulation results showed that the parameters and latent attribute profiles were recovered fairly well; and ignoring multilevel structure would underestimate the standard error and yield a poor classification rate.
