Speech: Data Analysis Workshop: Handling Moderator Variables in Research: Conceptual Framework and Statistical approach

Moderator variables have seen an increased use in empirical studies across various disciplines including consumer behavior, education science, psychology, management, and more. Integrating and testing moderator variables in a research requires following some guidelines both at the conceptual and statistical levels. In this workshop, participants will be introduced to:

  • The conceptual challenges that must be adressed in order to introduce moderators in a model and the need to distinguish between pure and quasi moderators
  • The typology of moderators (2 groups vs multiple groupsĀ ; categorical vs continuous)
  • The statistical approach to follow for PLS-SEM and CB-SEM
  • A practical demonstration using a real-database example illustrating multigroup moderation testing
