[AMOS] - interpretation of bootstrap indirect effects for one-tailed hypothesis

#1
Hello all,

I'm testing for mediation using bootstrapping in AMOS. This method reports results for two-tailed significance, but my hypotheses are directional. With bootstrapping, significance is assessed based on confidence intervals - though a p-value is also provided. For regression, I would normally divide the p-value by two to get the one-tailed result. Would this be appropriate with tests of indirect effects too? In my case the two-tailed p value is .068 so it is potentially either marginal or significant depending on whether it is interpreted as two- or one-tailed.

Also, since, for these types of tests, CI rather than p-value is reported, is there an equivalent adjustment for the confidence intervals?

Hope this makes sense enough sense for you to comment?

Thanks in advance for your help.
