```Hello Stas

I am using stata 11.1, this is an example of my syntax

xtmixed logPerformance1 Question33 v_246 ZSchaufeli_Short zpos EExPOS || Team: ZSchaufeli_Short zpos, mle variance

This is the output I get and I would like to probe the interaction term EExPOS further and find out whether the simple slopes are significant.
