Mediation and moderation analysis is ubiquitous in social-behavioral sciences; however, most resources for these analytic approaches only cover between-subject designs – where individuals are randomly assigned to a condition or observed once on all variables of interest.

This mini seminar focuses on how to apply these analyses in simple within-subject designs: 1) within-subject experiments where individuals are observed under multiple conditions, 2) pre-post designs where individuals are observed before and after an event/treatment/training and may also be randomly assigned to conditions. Development of within-subject mediation and moderation has been relatively recent, and this workshop will teach you how to use a new analytic tool for this purpose: the MEMORE macro (freely available for SPSS and SAS).

Taught by the creator of this macro, you will learn to estimate and interpret mediation and moderation analyses for simple within-subjects designs. You will learn to conduct power analysis for these designs, how to properly preregister these analyses, describe causal limitations of these analyses, and how to write up results and create graphics to support analyses. Finally, we will describe extensions of these approaches to more complex within-subject designs (e.g., multilevel and longitudinal models), and where to learn more about these approaches.

Starting September 12, we are offering this seminar as a 2-day synchronous*, livestream workshop held via the free video-conferencing software Zoom. Each day will consist of two lecture sessions which include hands-on exercises, separated by a 30-minute break. You are encouraged to join the lecture live, but will have the opportunity to view the recorded session later in the day if you are unable to attend at the scheduled time.

*We understand that finding time to participate in livestream courses can be difficult. If you prefer, you may take all or part of the course asynchronously. The video recordings will be made available within 24 hours of each session and will be accessible for four weeks after the seminar, meaning that you will get all of the class content and discussions even if you cannot participate synchronously.

Closed captioning is available for all live and recorded sessions. Captions can be translated can be translated to a variety of languages including Spanish, Korean, and Italian. For more information, click here.
