p-value showing 0.000 for all paths

Post by cindy_26 » Fri Jun 14, 2019 3:14 am

Hi. I have ran the bootstrapping and understand that by using SmartPLS 3 we can choose to view the result in either p-value or t-value.
However, the p-value showed for all the paths in my result are 0.000, while t-value showed different readings for each path. The p-value result don't seem normal for me.
Kindly please help me. Thank you.

Why do you think that "p-value result don't seem normal" or that "t-value showed different readings"?

With such high t-values the p-values for all paths are much smaller than 0.0001 which is displayed as 0.000 when showing only 3 decimal places. If you increase the number of decimal places you will see that p-values should have numbers around the tenth decimal.
