First, mediating effect of M1 between A, B, C, D, E , F, G and DV is tested through the following steps:
Step 1: examine the impact of A, B, C, D, E , F, G to DV
Step 2: examine the impact of A, B, C, D, E , F, G to M1
Step 3: examine the impact of the independent variables (A, B, C, D, E , F, G) and the mediating variable (M1) to the dependent variable (DV)
Second, mediating effect of M2 between A, B, C, D, E , F, G and DV is tested through the following steps:
Step 1: examine the impact of A, B, C, D, E , F, G to DV
Step 2: examine the impact of A, B, C, D, E , F, G to M2
Step 3: examine the impact of the independent variables (A, B, C, D, E , F, G) and the mediating variable (M2) to the dependent variable (DV)
Finally, author test the mediation effect of both m1 and m2 in the relationship between (A, B, C, D, E , F, G and the DV
Step 1: examine the impact of the (A, B, C, D, E , F, G) to the dependent variable DV
Step 2: examine the impact of the (A, B, C, D, E , F, G) to the the mediating variables (M1 and M2).
Step 3: examine the impact of the mediating variables (M1 AND M2) and the independent variables (A, B, C, D, E , F, G) affects the dependent variable (DV)
Are all the steps above correct? Or do I have to adjust any steps?
