Necessary Condition Analysis

Came across a paper "When predictors of outcomes are necessary: guidelines for the combined use of PLS-SEM and NCA" by Nicole Franziska Richter, Sandra Schubring, Sven Hauff, Christian M. Ringle, Marko Sarstedt. https://www.emerald.com/insight/content/doi/10.1108/IMDS-11-2019-0638/full/htm...

Re: AVE below .5 but reliability statistics is good

Thank you so much prof Becker.
With the deletion of one indicator with low loading the minimum AVE .5 could be achieved.

AVE below .5 but reliability statistics is good

Just trying to make out if AVE is less than .5 but CR and Cronbach Alpha is v. good what should be done? For example AVE= .398 ; Composite Reliability=.867 ; Cronbach Alpha=.829 ; rho_A=.840 I know recommended AVE is not less than .5 However, after bootstrapping the results I have got are also signi...

Re: AVE and Composite Reliability for Reflective Constructs

The mention of considering AVE below .5 is proposed in Fornell & Larcker's (1981) paper too. It is suggestive of relying on composite reliability alone for concluding the validity of the construct to be adequate. Refer to Page no. 42 of: "Evaluating Structural Equation Models with Unobserva...

Re: AVE and Composite Reliability for Reflective Constructs

Dear Prof Ringle, The constructs in my model are lower order and reflective. I have found one refrence advocating for the use of AVE <.5 . Below I am quoting the same: "AVE varies from 0 to 1, and it represents the ratio of the total variance that is due to the latent variable. Using the logic ...

AVE and Composite Reliability for Reflective Constructs

I have a query regarding acceptance of AVE below .5. Gaskin in his video on 2nd and 3rd order factor analysis using PLS SEM has mentioned that AVE is too stringent a criteria. Generally speaking if AVE is below .5, the indicators are dropped to bring it to meet this minimum criteria (threshold). How...
