You are describing the aim, not how you want to do it. With
this type of modeling the devil is in the detail. For now
I would forget about selection, and first focuss on 
understanding the different forms of multilevel modeling 
and their advantages and disadvantages. A nice place to 
start would be: <>.
After that you can look if you still have time left to 
look at selection in a multilevel context.

Hope this helps,
