This time we will be talking about second stage moderated mediation. And the agenda for today is pretty simple. We will learn how to theorize and test for second stage moderated mediation models. So the difference between fourth-stage and second-stage models is the position of our moderator. in fourth-stage models the moderator is placed in the first path, the path between our independent variable and our remediator. So we are looking for an interaction term of our independent variable and our moderator and it's effects on our mediator. On stage two models, we are looking at the facts on this second path. This interactive effect on the second path are the path between our mediator and our dependent variable. We are looking for the interaction term between our mediator and our moderator and it's effects on our dependent variable. So, with second stage moderation, or second stage moderated mediation models, their moderating effect will happen between the mediator and their dependent variable. Is that clear? So one example that we have for you here, which is different from the examples that we have been using so far. Is a paper that was published at Journal of Management in which we look at the relationship between psychological meaningfulness and engagement. Via anticipated job fit and we theorized that anticipated job fit would interact with organization identification to predict job engagement. If you want to learn more about this model, just download the paper, and you can read how we conduct the analysis. So how do we theorized about second-stage moderated mediation models? So the first step is pretty similar to the first step of our first stage moderated mediation models. We needed to show that the indirect effect is significant. And we needed to theorize about that indirect effect. So we theorize about the effects of the independent variable on the dependent variable via the mediator. The next step is a little bit different. We look at the relationship between our mediator and our dependent variable. And how that relationship changes based on the values of the moderator. Remember, this is the second step, or the second path in our mediation model, is the path between the mediator and the dependent variable that changes based on the values based on our moderator. And finally, you'll theorize the whole model. You'll theorize that the indirect effect of the independent variable, own the dependent variable. Really the mediator changes based on the value of your moderator. Or put differently this indirect effect is a function of your moderator. I want you to get familiar with this language, because probably you'll hear this language over and over and over again. Okay. Is a function of, usually we use that term to talk about moderation's. How do we test for these second stage models? Initial, the first step, the first thing that you need to do is to conduct a mediation model test, and that's very similar to what we did in the past. It's very similar to how we conduct an interactive fact model analysis, and we covered that in one of our prior sessions. And then, we do a a test, a traditional test of the moderation, of the mediator and the moderator, or the dependent variable. Then we look at the process models, I would recommend you to adopt model number 15, okay, in this case. And I will explain that to you in a bit, okay? Model 14 and 15 are pretty similar, elastic with 15, I'll explain that to you pretty soon. And then we conduct bootstrapping analysis, and the reason is we needed to see if those indirect effects vary the strain for the direction of those indirect effect change based on different levels of the moderator. Then finally we will take a look at the index of moderated mediation.
