Dear All,

With kind help from several friends on the list, I am getting close. Now here are something interesting I just realized: for random effects, lmer reports standard deviation instead of standard error! Is there a hidden option that tells lmer to report standard error of random effects, like most other multilevel or mixed modeling software, so that we can say something like "randome effect for xxx is significant, while randome effect for xxx is not significant"? Thanks!

Best,
Shige
