We examined whether path coefficients
differ between individuals with cognitive disabilities and those with non-cognitive disabilities through multiple group analyses.

, t-statistics & coefficient of determination.
Final model with significant path coefficients
is given in Fig.
MacKinnon, Lockwood, Hoffman, West, and Sheets (2002) compared the various ways to test the statistical significance of the mediating effect in a Monte Carlo study, and recommended testing the joint significance of the two path coefficients
comprising the mediating effect.
PC) are equal to the path coefficients
that can explain the change of standard deviation in a dependent variable occurred by the change of standard deviation in an independent variable, when all other fitted independent variables were held constant.
, determination coefficients, and correlation index were calculated.
The value of path coefficients
are found out for the conceptual model developed and tested empirically for each company understudy.
The numbers above the arrows, in Figure 1, are referred to as standardized path coefficients
and are analogous to regression coefficients or standardized beta weights in multiple regression (Keith, 2006).
Generally, the hypotheses proposed in the research model are supported by the data with path coefficients
at highly significant levels and in the predicted directions.
All ofthe path coefficients
in the free and constrained models were highly significant (p < 0.
05 level of significance on the appropriate path coefficients
In their findings, significant path coefficients
existed between service quality and customer satisfaction, and between customer satisfaction and purchase intention.
