Using weights from a SmartPLS model to estimate LVs in a second sample

Hi all, I have estimated several SmartPLS models including a reflective dependent latent variable, behavior, and several formative independent latent variables, all of which have are measured with a number of manifest variables. I would like to use the weights from these models to estimate the depen...

Re: SmartPLS 3.0 and small sample size

Thanks. I experimented some. It seems that eliminating a few indicators from one or the other of the main effects to allow the product method
yields a larger interaction term than using the two-stage approach with all of the initial indicators. Is this correct in general?

Re: SmartPLS 3.0 and small sample size

Hello Christian,

Thanks for the quick response. N = 97. There are four predictor LVs in the model, one with
7 indicators, the others have about 30 - 40 indicators each. We need to create interaction terms using the
seven-item LV and each of the others.

SmartPLS 3.0 and small sample size

Hi all, I am testing a model in SmartPLS 2.0 and SmartPLS 3.0 The model and data are the same; the program are on different computers. In SmartPLS 3.0 when I create an interaction term of two variables I get the message that the sample size is too small, due to having more indicators in the interact...

SmartPLS and levels of analysis

Hi, I would like to test a two-level model with industry at the higher level and firms nested within industry. I'm interested in how industry characteristics moderate relationships between independent and dependent firm-level variables. Packages such as HLM and LISREL do this. I suspect SmartPLS won...

Copied and renamed models won't run

Hi all, Sometimes I copy a valid model such as "Model A," then I either use the automatic label "Copy of Model A," or I change the name, "Model B." In either case the new model (the old model with the new name) won't run and I get the message "There must be a valid pathmodel for calculation." Also n...

Hi Hengky,

Thanks again. Do you know of any published sources that discuss composite reliability and other aspects of PLS interaction terms? It would be nice to have something to cite in our papers submitted for publication.

Hi,

Thanks for the info. I have six dependent LVs in my model, and SmartPLS calculates a separate self-focus x implicit agency interaction for each.

composite reliabilities of interaction terms

Hi all, I am testing a model with a number of LVs. The results look good in general. The main effects composite reliabilities are greater than the Cronbach's alphas, but the composite reliabilities of the interaction terms vary and some are much lower than the corresponding alphas. Why is this and w...

Bootstrapping Problem Calculating loadings

I am using SmartPLS and a fictitious dataset in a research methods course I am teaching. The means of the item loading estimates from the pseudo samples for some of the latent variables, one in particular, are much lower than the estimate from the original whole sample. The reason is that many of th...
