moderated mediation for continuous variables

Post by rabiah » Tue Jan 21, 2020 3:30 pm

hi, my model looks like this

X --> M --> Y, my moderators are V, W, Z and these moderators are continuous variables.

How do i test moderated mediation analysis for this model using SmartPLS? I prefer to have them remain as continuous, or at least grouped into 3 groups (low, average, high) similar as what i can get from PROCESS Macro. Therefore, i am not so keen of using MGA because it can only analyse 2 groups which is low and high of the moderators.

Thank you
