Model -2LL Δdf Δ-2LL AIC BIC
Model 0 3538.07 - 3544.07 3557.41
Model 1 2491.72 1 1046.35*** 2499.72 2517.51

Model 3 1635.47 2 0.58 1649.47 1680.60

Notes. -2LL = -2Log Likelihood, Δdf = Change of degrees of freedom between the models, Δ-2LL = Change of -2Log Likelihood between the models, AIC = Akaike’s information criterion, BIC = Bayesian information criterion of Schwarz. Model 0 = random intercept model, Model 1 = additional fixed effect for slope, Model 2 = additional random effect for slope, Model 3 = additional fixed effects for group and interaction between group and slope.
