Average variance explained less than 0.5

Post by dwaikat@kth.se » Sat Dec 05, 2015 5:25 pm

I have got the following dilemma. When I used traditional PLS I got AVE (average variance explained) of 0.62 for a construct, but when I used consistent PLS I get 0.46 for the same construct.
Is there any suggestion for a form of words that can be used to justify proceeding with the analysis on the basis of AVE of 0.46?
