Mediation Step by Step With Bootstrapping Here is the model we’ll be testing Step 1: Create Table Hypothesis Partial Med MU-Burn-Satw Partial Med PartBurn-Satw Direct Beta w/o Med Direct Beta w/Med Indirect Beta Mediation type observed Step 2: Direct Effects Significant? Regression Weights: (Group number 1 - Default model) Estimate S.E. C.R. P satw <--- part .130 .050 2.594 .009 satw <--- mu -.525 .040 -13.102 *** Step 3: Update Table Hypothesis Partial Med MU-Burn-Satw Partial Med PartBurn-Satw Direct Beta w/o Med Direct Beta w/Med Indirect Beta Mediation type observed -.60*** .12** Estimate S.E. C.R. P satw <--- part .130 .050 2.594 .009 satw <--- mu -.525 .040 -13.102 *** Step 4: Set up Bootstrap Step 5: Run with Mediator If it throws you an error when you run it with bootstrapping, just run it again, and again, and again, until it runs without an error. If this still doesn’t work, then close and reopen AMOS and try again. Step 5a: Direct Effects w/Med Hypothesis Partial Med MU-Burn-Satw Partial Med PartBurn-Satw Click here first Then here Direct Beta w/o Med Direct Beta w/Med -.60*** -.346 .12** .052 Indirect Beta Mediation type observed Step 5b: Direct Effects w/Med Hypothesis Partial Med MU-Burn-Satw Partial Med PartBurn-Satw Direct Beta w/o Med Direct Beta w/Med -.60*** -.346** .12** .052 (ns) Indirect Beta Mediation type observed Click here first ** Then here Not significant (ns) Step 6a: Indirect Effects Hypothesis Partial Med MU-Burn-Satw Partial Med PartBurn-Satw Click here first Then here Direct Beta w/o Med Direct Beta w/Med Indirect Beta -.60*** -.346** -.253 .12** .052 (ns) .067 Mediation type observed Step 6b: Indirect Effects Hypothesis Partial Med MU-Burn-Satw Partial Med PartBurn-Satw Click here first Then here Direct Beta w/o Med Direct Beta w/Med Indirect Beta -.60*** -.346** -.253** .12** .052 (ns) .067** Mediation type observed Step 7: Mediation? Hypothesis Partial Med MU-Burn-Satw Partial Med PartBurn-Satw Direct Beta w/o Med Direct Beta w/Med Indirect Beta Mediation type observed -.60*** -.346** -.253** Partial .12** .052 (ns) .067** Full No Mediation • If Indirect is not significant • Also if direct effect of IV on Med is insignificant or if direct effect from Med to Y is insignificant Indirect Effects • Both direct effects are not significant, but Indirect effect is significant Full Mediation • Given the direct effects were significant prior to adding the mediator • If Indirect is significant and Direct (with med) is not significant Partial Mediation • If Direct (with med) & Indirect are significant
