Blindfolding in SmartPLS 3

Post by marta » Wed Feb 24, 2016 7:56 am

Hi,
I have just started using SmartPLS 3 and I'm comparing some results with the ones got by using PLS-Graph. Everything is OK and SmartPLS 3 is great but I have a problem related to the blindfolding procedure. I have been reading in previous posts that there were some kind of problems related to the blindfolding procedure in former versions of SmartPLS and I would like to know why the result of Blindfolding procedure is different in PLS-Graph and SmartPLS 3. In have run the algorithm applying different methods related to the omission distance but nothing has changed.

I would be very grateful if someone could help me on this regard.
Best,

We have no idea how Blindfolding has been implemented in PLS-Graph and cannot comment on this issue. In SmartPLS, the procedure has been implemented as described in the literature. You may run a little Excel example to check for yourself.

Best regards
Christian

Dear Prof
I hope you are doing well.
I would ask kindly more advise about the followings:

1- Is his way right in finding Effect Size F Square in this Video? Do I have to do this step for my thesis? Please

2- Is his way right in finding Effect Size Q Square in this Video? Do I have to do this step for my thesis? Please

3- In using 12 cases for the D (Omission Distance), what should be reported from Blindfolding to get Q Square? Is the total results are sufficient and the rest of cases to be given in an appendix? Or all cases are necessary to be given within the text.

I would like to thank you very much for your kind support and always be grateful to you.


Best Regards
