Comments: Causal Interpretations of Mediation Effects
Jo, Booil; Stuart, Elizabeth A.
Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness, v5 n3 p250-253 2012
The authors thank Dr. Lindsay Page for providing a nice illustration of the use of the principal stratification framework to define causal effects, and a Bayesian model for effect estimation. They hope that her well-written article will help expose education researchers to these concepts and methods, and move the field of mediation analysis in education forward. In this article, the authors provide additional background and discussion of some of the complexities regarding mediation analyses.
