Hi,
where can I find/nhow can I compute the indicator reliability for a reflective measurement model in the outer PLS model?

Thanks a lot for your Help!

Hi

After running the PLS algorithm:
- Report
- Overview
- You will have: variance extracted and composite reliability

best regards,

Bido

Hi,

Indicator Reliability = Outer Loading
Composite Reliability = Dillon Goldstein's similar Cronbach's Alpha

So, if you ask Composite Reliability (see Bido comment)
If you ask Indicator Reliability after run PLS Algorithm, open Report HTML, see outer loading output or see Path Diagram Okay.

Best Regards,
Hengky

Mr.Hengov

Some literatures explain that factor loading square is indicator reliability. Is it true for SmartPls 3.0 too.

Sure. That is a method specific feature and not a software feature.
