Re: Holdout Sample calculation

Dear All, You say that R2 values of the sample and the holdout sample should be fairly equal. Some breaf questions please: 1- Is there any reference / rule of thumb for assessing what is considered to be "fairly equal"? 2- If R2 values look too different, I guess the predictive validity would be pro...

Re: multigroup in smartpls 3 professional

Dear all, The problem seems to be in my database, even if it´s completely green. I had some semicolons at the end of some rows, and these semicolons created new columns (it can be seen cliking "raw file" while the database is opened). All the celds (except the first arrow) must be numeric (not only ...

Re: how to test my hypotheses using smartPLS?

Hi, You might want to take a look to this quite new book, it´s a hands-on book, it´s based on smartPLS2 but if you work with smartPLS3 you can also get your goal. It´s a great book, it´s written step by step what it should be done, from the very beginning untill the end: "A primer on Partial Least S...

Hi Thank you. No, I don´t have non metric natural variables (like sex). I have a variable which is called "moment of entry" (4 items), and I want to have only 2 groups if possible (pioneers and followers). That´s why I want to "force" the analysis to have only 2 groups, splitting the sample into 2. ...

Dear all, In my case it is not natural (like gender), and I want to split the data into two with my own criteria. I guess I have to keep in mind that I need the minimun simple size in both sub-samples. I will read chapter 9 of Gastón Sánchez free e-book (Frank, that might help you too), it talks abo...

Dear Frank, I have the same question. I also have 4 ítems (Likert 1-5) which would allow me divide the sample(200) into 2: I have done this: calculate the mean value of the 4 ítems for every respondant. Then calculate the median (with Excel). The problema is that the median is 3,25 and there are 20 ...

multigroup: median--> what to do with the borderline case

Dear all, I want to conduct a MULTIGROUP analysis, but I have not a categorical variable. Instead, I have 4 items (Likert 1-5) which define a variable called "moment of entry (ME)". This variable would allow me divide my sample (200) into 2 groups: pioneers (P) and followers (F). The mean value of t...

Likert scale: odd or even?

Dear all, I wonder if it´s better to design an odd or an even Likert scale to be afterwards used in smartPLS. With even (for example from 1 to 6) likert scales you do not allow the respondants to place themselves in the middle-point, so I guess it might be better in terms of getting more differences...
