Question

  • One of the most advanced quantitative methods that can be applied to
    criminal justice data is mediation and moderation
    analysis.  After reading the two articles by Pick and Teo (2017)
    and Pais (2017), as well as the articles by Hayes and others, what are the
    advantages of applying this analysis? 
  • How do an inadequate design, a flawed analysis strategy, and lack
    of attention to assumptions affect the use of mediation and moderation
    analysis?
  • How does the researcher’s lack of theoretical framework concerning
    variables affect the application of mediation and moderation analysis?
