Model Fit Measures for PLS-SEM

Post by Hana » Tue May 16, 2017 9:51 pm

Hi,

1) Other than the measurement and structural evaluation criteria for the conceptual model, is there any valid fit measures using PLS-SEM?

2) Is any of GoF, SRMR or RMS applicable for PLS-SEM?

Thank you ,
Hana

If you know why you need fit, you may want to use the SRMR of the saturated model as an approx. measure of fit in PLS-SEM. You may want to check this link:

I conducted PLSc Algorithm for GOF

my results say d_G and NFI =n/a

How i can get the results or why not ?

How i will report my GOF

I have two Formative HOC IVs , one mediator and one DV

You may not use PLSc (PLSc, GoF and higher-order models may not fit well; in that combination, results are not available). If you really want to mimmic factor-models by using PLSc, as a work-araound, you may use two-stage approach for higher-order constructs.
