Re: Can i modify the results of my moderating effect

Re: negative sample mean value

Obviously, your data has negative values. But this negative data is positively correlated with something else.

Re: Multigroup Analysis with 4 Groups (OTG)

Hi, you seem to interpret the Bonferroni correction correctly. You would the adjusted probability of error level for your assessment. In PLS-SEM a similar case is the confirmatory tetrad analysis. Here, to judge if a measurement model is reflective or formative, one needs to look at multiple tests p...

Re: Hypothesized Models in Published Research

Hi Ryan You may want to take a look at published PLS-SEM articles in high ranked journals, especially in your discipline. They may serve you as a blueprint. Here you find some PLS-SEM review studies across different disciplines that would be a good start: https://www.smartpls.com/documentation/liter...

Re: Brand Equity

Both questions require your theoretical reasoning based on prior publications. Hence, you need to conduct a literature review on brand equity constructs. A good start may be to search for the keywords "PLS" and "brand equity". For the discussion about formative and reflective, yo...

Re: Descriptive Analysis?

Hmmh, you may ask your supervisor for clarification. S/he may want you to do a moderator analysis or multigroup analysis using the age or the education variables, which would not be uncommon for a TAM model. Also, you may consider conducting an importance-performance map analysis (IPMA). Best regard...

Re: SmartPLS vs SAS PROC PLS

We have no experience with SAS PROC PLS (i.e., we do not use SAS). Isn't it a PLS regression analysis tool (which differs from PLS-SEM technically). Please check the SAS.

If you need any info on SmartPLS, please get back to use here.

Re: Effect size f-square and q-square

I don't fully understand the description of your model. Anyways, if you only have one explanatory for an endogenous latent variable, the q² computation does not work - or you could say that Q²_excluded is 0 and, then, plug in the value of Q²_included and 0 for Q² excluded into the equation: q² = (Q²...
