Re: Model Fit Measures for PLS-SEM

You may not use PLSc (PLSc, GoF and higher-order models may not fit well; in that combination, results are not available). If you really want to mimmic factor-models by using PLSc, as a work-araound, you may use two-stage approach for higher-order constructs.

Re: Level of analysis question

We did not follow-up on this direction. As as work around, you may extract the unstandardized latent variable scores from the IPMA results report and run a "standard multilevel analysis" for the partial regression models.

Re: HTMT discriminant validity

Thanks. Use the one or the other approach but with 5,000 bootstrap samples. However, your upper bound is above 1 which means that discriminant validity has not been established. Your confidence intervals are very wide. I suppose that you use a small sample (which would be a data problem) and/or a fu...

Re: HTMT discriminant validity

You would like to do a one-sided test (or use a 10% probability of error with the 2-sided test) to obtain the upper bound at the 95% point (and not at 97.5%.

Re: FIMIX exploratory variable

You may exclude the potential explanatory variables form the model before running FIMIX-PLS. @FIMIX-PLS and segmentation: The book on advanced PLS-SEM issues by Hair et al.

Re: HTMT discriminant validity

Well, it's a little bit high. Can you get it below 0.9? Otherwise, bootstrap the HTMT (use complete bootstrapping in SmartPLS 3) and show that the HTMT is significantly lower than 1 (look at the upper bound of HTMT's bootstrap confidence interval).

Re: Bonferroni

This is not a PLS-specific but general concern. Please search for articles, books, and webpages that address the multiple testing issues. In multiple testing situations, we need to adjust the accepted probability of error level. When using the Bonferroni correction to account for 6 comparisons, the ...

Re: Sample size: minimum R2 method

In principle, you are on the right track. In the second edition of the book, the explications have been slightly modified. Here, one looks at an effect size level and the required sample size. The attached pictures provide further explications. Please note that these are technical considerations. Re...

Re: Usage of Rho_A reliability coefficient

A rho_A value above 1 is strange and should not occur. You may revert to Cronbach's alpha in that case.

Re: Problem with Importing Data (Missing Values) from SAV to CSV to SmartPLS

When the data export from SPSS includes such values "4,64E+09", SmartPLS 3 cannot correctly read the data file. "E" is a string and SmartPLS 3 only expects values. The rule for SmartPLS data: Only use text in the first row (i.e., the header which contains the variable names); sometimes, we also expe...
