Help! Compositional invariance established but both original mean and variance outside the confidence intervals

Post by Nathanb » Tue Dec 11, 2018 1:16 pm

How can compositional invariance be established but both original mean and original variance be outside permutation intervals? Is this still considered Partial Invariance? how should the construct in question be treated?
Best regards

Then, you established partial invariance and can compare the standardized group-specific coefficients: https://www.emeraldinsight.com/doi/abs/ ... -2014-0304

Thank you Dr. Ringle for clarifying this for me.
