Assessing Moderator Variables: Two Computer Simulation Studies

Educational and Psychological Measurement Volume 56, Number 1, ISSN 0013-1644


A strategy is proposed for conceptualizing moderating relationships based on their type (strictly correlational and classically correlational) and form, whether continuous, noncontinuous, logistic, or quantum. Results of computer simulations comparing three statistical approaches for assessing moderator variables are presented, and advantages of the methods are discussed. (SLD)
