### Re: Using the OTG approach to compare between 3 alternatives?

Hi guys, I tried to proceed with the OTG test R code obtained here: https://www.pls-sem.net/downloads/advanced-issues-in-pls-sem-1/ but further questions arose. I used the R code and the previously generated bootstrap estimates from SmartPLS (5,000 bootstraps, equal across all 3 groups) to compute t...

### Re: Using the OTG approach to compare between 3 alternatives?

Hi Gerhard, I struggle with the same topics and came up with the same questions. Now I have calculated the FR-Value with an self-developed Excel-Sheet. Do you mind sharing this self-developed an Excel-Sheet for the FR-values with the community here? How did you (or anyoneelse who is advanced regardi...

### Second-order formative construct (exogenous)

Dear all, in order to model my first-order reflective second-order formative construct, which is an exogenous variable with 5 dimensions with equal amount of items in the structural model, I followed the guidelines of Becker, Klein & Wetzels (2012), Hair et al. (2014) and Ringle, Sarstedt & Straub (...

### 2nd-order construct & AVE: smartPLS vs. manual calculation

Hello community, I have a first-order reflective second-order formative construct (type II) being an exogenous variable in the structural model. Its subconstructs have an unequal number of items, thus, I use the two-stage approach. In order to assess validity and reliability of the reflective subcon...

### Re: HTMT necessary? Value >1 with Type II construct

Thanks a lot for your opinion! It has been very helpful for deciding on the next steps of the data analysis: after merging the three highly correlated subconstructs (of which literature says that they somehow indirectly affect each other) to one more general construct leads to good VIF values (≤ 1.6...

### Re: HTMT necessary? Value >1 with Type II construct

Dear Jan, thank your very much for your reply and recommendation! I really appreciate your timely and detailed answer. I agree on your explanation regarding the characteristics of second-order formative constructs and I would like to add some additional thoughts to this "hot topic": One of the decis...

### HTMT necessary? Value >1 with Type II construct

Hello all, the exogenous variable of my model is a first-oder reflective second-order formative construct (type II). I would like to use the HTMT criterion to assess discriminant validity as recommended by Henseler, Ringle & Sarstedt (2015). I detected that the HTMT values between the subconstructs ...
