This prior body of research was essential in guiding the formation of the theorized pathway tested in this study.

By using quantitative methods of data analysis, it was possible to precisely specify and analytically test the proposed pathway and study hypotheses as well as statistically interpret the results of the analyses. For example, based on the use of inferential statistics it was possible to determine how probable it was that the observed
