Return the confidence interval of the standardized moderation effect in the output of stdmod_lavaan().

# S3 method for stdmod_lavaan
confint(object, parm, level = 0.95, ...)

Arguments

object

The output of stdmod_lavaan().

parm

Ignored. Always return the bootstrap confidence interval of the standardized moderation effect.

level

The level of confidence, default is .95, returning the 95% confidence interval.

...

Additional arguments. Ignored by the function.

Value

A one-row matrix of the confidence intervals.

Details

If bootstrapping is used to form the confidence interval by stdmod_lavaan(), users can request the percentile confidence interval of using the stored bootstrap estimate.

Examples


# Load a test data of 500 cases
dat <- test_mod1
library(lavaan)

mod <-
"
med ~ iv + mod + iv:mod + cov1
dv ~ med + cov2
"
fit <- sem(mod, dat)
coef(fit)
