Function to test whether the average causal mediation effects and direct effects are significantly different between the treatment and control contitions.

## S3 method for class 'mediate'
test.TMint(x, conf.level = x$conf.level, ...)
``` |

`x` |
output from |

`conf.level` |
level of the returned two-sided confidence intervals for the effect differences. By default it is set to the value used in the original mediate call. |

`...` |
additional arguments. |

`test.TMint`

returns an object of class "`htest`

" when applied to a `mediate`

object. See `t.test`

for more explanations of the contents. The function returns an object of class "`htest.order`

" which has its own `print`

method included in this package.
