Hi Hengkov,

I am thinking what if I take the average means of all formative indicators and make it as global single-item (marker or Measured Latent Merker Variable-MLMV)? Does it make sense?

How can I decide my global single-item measure as I have almost in the last stage of analysis.

### Re: Low R2 when reflective, high when formative?

Hi - I have a couple of latent variables, where I have a weak theoretical idea whether they should be formative or reflective, theoretically I can go with either/or. When I right-click in Smart-PLS and inverts the measurement models I find that the R2 is 0,3 when reflective and 0,6 when formative? ...

### Re: Smallest Path coefficient to report?

Hi - I am working on a complex model, and I wish to reduce the number of paths. Some of the paths are strong and some are weak, - it would make some kind of sense to not include some paths. The question is, - how strong or weak can a path be for inclusion? 0,1? 0,2? Is there some kind of best pract...

### Re: How to calculate the t-value of the indirect effect

Hi Everybody, I have one question to calculate the t-value of the indirect effect. The bootstrap results of my model are in the following. Original Sample (O) T Statistics (|O/STERR|) Sample Mean (M) X -> Y 0.13 1.78 0.13 X -> M 0.24 3.09 0.24 M -> Y 0.68 13.47 0.68 Standard Deviation (STDEV) Stand...

Thank you Sarjana Hengky Latan and Ken Lee. In fact I want to use both methods but in Sobel test I had the problem but now cleared.

Ken Lee I will check out the reference.

Thank you very much. BR

### Sobel's test

Though the direct path is not significant but sobel's test is significant, so can I report it in the paper?

Hi, I've learned from others that if an contruct is endogenous,then repeated indexs will lead to multicollinearity.Is it really? Hello. I agree with the above reply. Repeated indicator approach is more appropriate for reflective-reflective type model and use Mode A for hierarchical LV. Multicolline...

Thanks for your reply! It worked very well. Did you mean A Primer on Partial Least Squares Structural Equation Modeling (PLS-SEM) when you talked about Hair et al. (2013)?

### The Repeated indictor approach and the Two-step approach

Dear All, Am I right that estimation of higher (e,g., second) order constructs in SEM-PLS by two-step approach and estimating higher (e,g., second) order constructs not in SEM-PLS gives different results. Or in other way, can I say that The Repeated indictor approach is used when we estimate second ...

### AVE of second order construct

Dear all,
Why the AVE of my second-order constructs are a little bit below than 0.5 but I have no problem in Fornel-Larcker criterion. Please facilitate me in this regard.
