How do I delete questions with low score

Post by nle043 » Sun Feb 09, 2014 2:28 pm

Hi..
Should I delete both in reflective and formative measure? How do I know the cut off point? How to calculate this? Any reference?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

For reflective indicators > delete items with loading < 0.6
For formative indicators if wight not significant but loading high, you retain it.

References: My books: SmartPLS, WarpPLS and XLSTAT-PLSPM.

Hi,

You can delete it, if have support theory. Maybe, I recommend you check data outlier first.
