Hello,
I have searched everywhere and read chapters of the SmartPLS 2014 book. Still, I can't figure out how to calculate tp value for indirect effects? I know the indirect effects but how to get the T values of them? After that I can use the Tdist function in excel and calculate the pvalues?
Could someone give me a detailed explanation how to do this? I would really need it in order to finally complete my master's thesis.
Help is really much appreciated!
Thanks

SmartPLS 3 gives pvalues for total and specific indirect effects.
I think the following paper also explains how to do this manually in Excel: Nitzl, C./Roldán, J./Cepeda, G. (2016): Mediation Analyses in Partial Least Squares Structural Equation Modeling: Helping Researchers to Discuss More Sophisticated Models, in: Industrial Management & Data Systems, Vol. 116, No. 9, pp. 18491864.
