An Introduction to Statistical Moderation
In this session, you will be introduced to the technique of statistical moderation. You will learn how moderation and mediation differ in certain respects, and I will teach you how Baron and Kenny conceptualize it. I will show you how to go through the steps to prepare your data and compute the linear regressions necessary for determining whether you have significant moderation or not. Further, I will discuss how to conduct moderation on several other statistical platforms (i.e., structural equation modeling, multi-level modeling and bootstrapping).
