I'm stumped on how to approach this model.  

Suppose I have 30 teachers each of whom have a single performance rating from the principle (or headmaster).  Each teacher has 20-30 students (not crossed) who have completed student evaluations.  The question is what is the association between performance ratings and student evaluations?

What I'm confused about is that I have level-2 dependent variable with level-1 and level-2 predictors (e.g. teacher age and teacher gender)

I thought that the following model might work:

.xtmixed t_perform s_eval t_age t_sex || s_eval: , mle

But I don't think this is correct model, because it regress Yi on Xij and Xi predictors?

Can this problem be addressed using -xtmixed- or is a different approach required?

Thanks for the advice.
