Mediation models for longitudinal data in developmental research free
MEDIATION MODELS FOR LONGITUDINAL DATA Mediation models for longitudinal data have much to offer for improving statisti cal inference and for allowing the examination of intraindividual variation. However, the choice to use longitudinal data adds considerable complexity to the mediation model.

This hypothetical sequential longitudinal mediation model is illustrated in Fig. 4. 2. Knowing that a domaingeneral ability, such as early finger skill has a developmentally limited relationship with the acquisition and performance of particular aspects of math is highly relevant for developmental models
Mediation models are used to describe the mechanism(s) by which one variable influences another. These models can be useful in developmental research to explicate the relationship between variables, developmental processes, or combinations of variables and processes. In this article we describe aspects of mediation effects specific to developmental research.
mediated effect estimates are biased in the case of true longitudinal mediation. For this and several other reasons, there has been a greater emphasis on the development of longitudinal mediation models. There are several classes of models for evaluating longitudinal mediation with the collection of three or more waves of data.
