Mediation, Moderation, and Conditional PROCESS Analysis is a methodological statistical technique developed by Dr. Andrew F. Hayes which is applied to ordinary least squares (OLS) regression. PROCESS simplifies the 'untangling' of the analyses of combined direct, indirect and total effects driven by simultaneous mediating and moderating influences in an OLS regression model. However, PROCESS can also be directly applied to estimate the mediating and moderating effects of latent variables in PLS path modeling and in covariance-based SEM.

In 2013, Dr. A.F. Hayes developed and published a comprehensive statistical approach to estimate and interpret intertwined, cascading, mediating and moderating, direct, indirect, and total effects, and the comparisons of significant differences between them, as embedded in a series of 77 templates for linear models. Dr. Hayes comprehensively integrated these techniques into a coherent set of SAS and SPSS 'PROCESS' scripts to estimate these complicated effects in linear regression models. We extended these SAS and SPSS scripts with R scripts and a GUI interface and applied this approach directly to both OLS regression and to PLS path modeling results. In this course, we provide our complimentary GUI-based desktop application, allstatGUI, that reliably calculates these estimates using participants' own data and OLS models. This course explains the conceptual basis of PROCESS and demonstrates how these complicated mediating and moderating effects can be reliably estimated on your own data and models using the allstatGUI application developed by Mr. Dean Lim and Dr. Geoffrey Hubona.

All software is included with the course materials. The course is structured as a tutorial which begins with simple mediation models and then progresses through a series of moderation examples. All of the models and data and analyses are provided with the course materials. A course participant should then be able to apply the PROCESS analysis approach to their own data and models which may contain a mixture of combined mediating and moderating effects.

Anyone who regularly works with regression models would benefit from this course. This includes graduate students, faculty and quantitative and data analysis professionals. However, please note that both our allstatGUI application and the PROCESS application are written in the visual RGtk2 language in R which has been noted to have problems running on a Mac computer. So if you only have a Mac computer available to you, you might have problems getting the free software that comes with the course materials to run properly.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone who works with ordinary least squares (OLS) regression models will benefit from this course.
  • SAS and SPSS users of PROCESS scripts who wish to transfer these skills over to using R software.
  • Graduate students, faculty and quantitative and data analysis professionals who work with linear modeling will benefit from this course.
  • Persons who work with partial least squares (PLS) path modeling and who wish to apply the PROCESS technique to latent variables in their own PLS path models.
  • People who only have available Mac computers might have problems running the GUI-based RGtk2-written R PROCESS software that accompanies the course materials.

What Will I Learn?
Apply the PROCESS technique to separately estimate complex, combined direct, indirect and total mediating and moderating effects in OLS models and in PLS path models using their own data and models.
Have a wider range of precise analytical tools to more finitely estimate individual direct, indirect and total mediating and moderating effects, as well as the significant differences among them.
Install and use our R-based allstatGUI and MEDMOD (PROCESS) software applications on their own data and models.

In statistics, a mediation model is one that seeks to identify and explicate the mechanism or process that underlies an observed relationship between an independent variable and a dependent variable via the inclusion of a third explanatory variable, known as a mediator variable.

Professor of Information Systems

Dr. Geoffrey Hubona held full-time tenure-track, and tenured, assistant and associate professor faculty positions at 3 major state universities in the Eastern United States from 1993-2010. In these positions, he taught dozens of various statistics, business information systems, and computer science courses to undergraduate, master's and Ph.D. students. He earned a Ph.D. in Business Administration (Information Systems and Computer Science) from the University of South Florida (USF) in Tampa, FL (1993); an MA in Economics (1990), also from USF; an MBA in Finance (1979) from George Mason University in Fairfax, VA; and a BA in Psychology (1972) from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA. He was a full-time assistant professor at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (1993-1996) in Catonsville, MD; a tenured associate professor in the department of Information Systems in the Business College at Virginia Commonwealth University (1996-2001) in Richmond, VA; and an associate professor in the CIS department of the Robinson College of Business at Georgia State University (2001-2010). He is the founder of the Georgia R School (2010-2014) and of R-Courseware (2014-Present), online educational organizations that teach research methods and quantitative analysis techniques. These research methods techniques include linear and non-linear modeling, multivariate methods, data mining, programming and simulation, and structural equation modeling and partial least squares (PLS) path modeling. Dr. Hubona is an expert of the analytical, open-source R software suite and of various PLS path modeling software packages, including SmartPLS. He has published dozens of research articles that explain and use these techniques for the analysis of data, and, with software co-development partner Dean Lim, has created a popular cloud-based PLS software application, PLS-GUI.
