I am working on some professor rating data. I would like to model the data in a multilevel fashion as professors are nested within departments, and departments are nested within the school. This is similar to the 8 schools example, except now there is an additional level. From the model, I would like to infer the random effect of the department and the random effect of each instructor.
I’m new to brms and a bit confused on how to specify this relationship. One of the vignettes notes I can use
Average_Rating|se(Rating_Se)~ 1 + (1|Professor_Name/Department)
Does this specify the relationship I’m trying to estimate correctly?
