Reflective- reflective or reflective- formative?

Post by ElSA » Fri Jan 03, 2020 9:40 pm

I have 3 multidimensional constructs in my model. The dimensions are reflective to their manifest or indicators. But i don’t know whether they are reflective-reflective or reflective-formative constructs. How could i know?

Hello,

The empirical illustrations in the following will help you.
