Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I understand the mechanics of the crossed/nested models with fixed/random effects. What I am having trouble with is initially looking at data description and identifying if it's crossed or nested. Does anyone have a good way of going about this, some points on how to distinguish between these two?

Thanks!!
