Model Fit: Need to achieve all or one enough?

Post by talmizie »

Hi all,

If SRMR value is <0.08 but NFI is less than 0.9, it is considered not fit?
Or just take SRMR as passed value to consider the model fit?
I'm confused about whether I should meet both criteria or just one.
Please help me. If there is an article I can refer to.

Thank you.

For PLS models the assessment of model fit is generally not very established yet, and thresholds are not commonly defined. Some researchers also questions the usefulness of model fit assessment in PLS models as they are mainly predictive.
