T-value in reflective measurement mode

Post by putomo » Sun Feb 11, 2018 1:37 am

In the reflective measurement model, could I use the T-value on each of the indicators to check which indicator is the most dominant or strongest reflective of the LV ? if NOT is there a way?

The loading is the correlation between indicator and construct and probably the best candidate for your interpretation.

Thanks for the response.

So we can interpret the higher the loading is the strongest indicator that reflecting that LV although the difference only infraction e.g. 0.8 vs 0.78? or any other factor we can be considered?

What about in the 2nd/3rd order analysis? the reflective relationship between 1st order to 2nd order, or 2nd order to 3rd order especially if I am conducting two-stage approach? do we use factor loading or we can also use T-value or other factors?
