PROCESS Graphing templates

As researcher, there is a big chance that you have to create graphs. We decided to created some PROCESS Graphing templates to help you graph moderation, moderated mediation, etc., based on the output of the PROCESS macro from Andrew Hayes for SPSS.

This PROCESS macro from Andrew Hayes is very usefull to calculate conditional effects within SPSS. If you want to visualize these effects, you can use one of our PROCESS Graphing templates.

The below templates are designed for Windows OS, but we have good news for Apple OS users: the templates are now also available for Excel on Mac!

Available PROCESS Templates

Please find below our current available templates. If you have special requests, please reach out to us. We can’t guarantee you that we can graph every model, but we are willing to try!

Model 1

PRODUCT V3 Model 1 Moderation (dich IV in legend - cont W on x-axis)

For model 1, we have 3 options, depending on your type of variables and how you want to graph the moderation effect:

Model 3

PRODUCT V3 Model 3 Moderated moderation

Graphing moderated moderation (PROCESS v3.0) – Model 3, with a continuous independent variable (X) Negative Emotions, a continuous dependent variable (Y) Support for Government Action, a categorical moderator (W) Sex, and a continuous moderator (Z) Age. Mac version.

Model 7

For Model 7 we have 2 options:

Model 7 Moderated Mediation Conceptual Model PROCESS

Graphing moderated mediation (PROCESS v3) – Model 7, with a dichotomous independent variable (X), and a continuous moderator (W), mediator (M) and dependent variable (Y). Mac version.

Model 7 Moderated Mediation Conceptual Model PROCESS continuous

Graphing moderated mediation (PROCESS v3) – Model 7, with a continuous independent variable (X), and a continuous moderator (W), continuous mediator (M) and continuous dependent variable (Y). There is no Mac version yet, but please feel free to contact us if you need one.

Model 8

For model 8 we have 2 options, but we recommend you to update PROCESS to the latest edition.

PRODUCT V216 Model 8 Moderated mediation (dich IV - cont W - cont Y)


Graphing moderated mediation (PROCESS v2.16) – Model 8, with a dichotomous independent variable (X), and a continuous moderator (W), mediator (M) and dependent variable (Y). As this is based on an earlier version of PROCESS, we are discontinuing the development of this template and recommend you to use V3.

PRODUCT V3 Model 8 Graphing moderated mediation (dich IV - cont W - cont M - cont Y)

Graphing moderated mediation (PROCESS v3) – Model 8, with a dichotomous independent variable (X), and a continuous moderator (W), mediator (M) and dependent variable (Y). Mac version.

Model 14

PRODUCT V3 Model 14 Graphing moderated mediation

Graphing moderated mediation (PROCESS v3.0) – Model 14, with a continuous independent variable (X) Dysfunctional Behavior, a continuous dependent variable (Y) Work Performance, a continuous mediator (M) Negative Affective Tone, and a continuous moderator (W) Nonverbal Negative Expressivity. Mac version.

Graphing moderated mediation (PROCESS v3.0) – Model 14, with a dichotomoous independent variable (X), a continuous dependent variable (Y), a continuous mediator (M), and a continuous moderator (W).
