INTERPERATATION OF T-VALUE

Post by Farahnaz » Tue Feb 09, 2016 4:27 pm

I am new in smart pls , I run an analysis for my master thesis , the model is valid and reliable but all my t-value arenot significant, less than 1.96, the highest is 1,21 between independent variable and satisfaction(as a dependent variable ) but it is signifficant between satisfaction amd loyalty (2 dependent ) variable , how can I interperate this ? because all my hypothesis would be rejected?
my model is as follow ,if there any possibility that my model is not correct?
please answer me as i have to submit my thesis in 10 days.

Without having more information it is hard to say. There could be many problems. For example,
- low sample size and hence, low power to detect small and medium effect sizes.
- collinearity between your independent constructs.
- low reliability of your construct scales and hence, strongly attenuated correlations.
- simply not (or very small) effects.
... and many more...

I was thinking I have to use regression Analysis but my mentor insist using smart pls as i have 2 dependent variable, I wanted to know if using smartpls correct for this model or not?
