Hello, I have 3 independent variables and a dependent variable. As per theory, all IVs are +vely related (positive path coefficients) to the DV. To assess the common method bias, when I add the highest factor from the principal component factor analysis to the PLS model as a control variable and run...

Second order repeated indicators- not loading properly

Hello, I am using the repeated indicator approach for my second order model. All indicators (reflective) are loading properly on their respective first order variable(>0.7), but some indicators are not loading properly on the second order. I was wondering if I should remove the indicators that are n...

mean and standard deviation of the constructs

Hello,
I want to find the mean and standard deviation of the constructs (each construct has 4 items) to report in descriptive statistics. I need some help on how to determine these values and was wondering if there is a way to find it by using SmartPLS

Thanks
George

Second order (IV Formative DV Reflective) measurement

Hello, I have a DV, which is a second order construct in reflective mode. My IV is also a second order construct, but in the formative mode (The first order constructs of this IV are reflective) I was wondering if I should use repeated indicator approach to model the DV and use LV approach (by runni...

I am having problem importing data from SPSS. From SPSS I saved the data set as an excel file, then saved it as a tab-delimted text file and then imported the file into SmartPLS. It only saves 10 rows (1 name + 9 data). I had tried various recommendations available at this post, but none seems to wo...

When I try to run the model, the system displays a message "there must be a valid pathmodel for calculation". I will appreciate any help in letting me know if it is possible, and h...
