CB-SEM Module 8: Structural Models and Mediation Testing

Dear Friends:

Greetings and welcome to module 8 of my lecture series on CB-SEM!

In this module, I explain how do you test structural models and mediation in AMOS. Structural models are the last step of SEM which are used to test the relationships of your research study. Mediation is an important social science phenomenon that helps us uncover the process (how) of the relationship between an IV and a DV. Finally, in this module I explain how do you use bootstrapping to test the strengths of your study relationships when the assumptions of non-normality are violated.

The introduction to the module can be found at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAPaKYCa428&list=PLTfj4qMbtEirAR3zi2Noea3wQrEKq5Bmn&index=52
