My question regards the q² in Smart PLS. I know about Q² and how to calculate it in PLS 4. However, I could not understand

1- what is q², and what is its function.

2- This is the formula q²= [Q²(included ) - Q²(excluded)] / 1 - Q²(included) .But in order to calculate it, how to get Q² individual model value, so that I can get Q² excluded value. Let me show an example:

Construct Q2Individual Model Included Value Q2 Full Model Excluded Value Q2 Excluded q2 Sign

q2 SL-LMX 0.014 0.359 0.345 0.022 *

3- Is there any function in latest versions of Smart PLS where q² could be calculated automatically?

Thank you
