    [AMOS] - interpretation of bootstrap indirect effects for one-tailed hypothesis

    Hello all, I'm testing for mediation using bootstrapping in AMOS. This method reports results for two-tailed significance, but my hypotheses are directional. With bootstrapping, significance is assessed based on confidence intervals - though a p-value is also provided. For regression, I would...

    Mediation without hypothesizing a direct effect

    I know the current view (contrary to Baron & Kenny) is that you do not need to find a significant direct effect to test for mediation (e.g., Shrout & Bolger). However, can you still test for mediation if you do not hypothesize a direct effect? For example, I'm testing a model in which X...
