Internal: AVE

Calculate the average variance extracted (AVE) as proposed by Fornell1981;textualcSEM. For details see the cSEM website

Usage
calculateAVE(
 .object              = NULL,
 .only_common_factors = TRUE
)
Arguments
.object

An R object of class cSEMResults resulting from a call to csem().

.only_common_factors

Logical. Should only concepts modeled as common factors be included when calculating one of the following quality critera: AVE, the Fornell-Larcker criterion, HTMT, and all reliability estimates. Defaults to TRUE.

Details

The AVE is inherently tied to the common factor model. It is therefore unclear how to meaningfully interpret AVE results in the context of a composite model. It is possible to report the AVE for composites by setting .only_common_factors = FALSE, however, result should be interpreted with caution as they may not have a conceptual meaning.

The function is only applicable to objects inheriting class cSEMResults_default. For objects of class cSEMResults_multi and cSEMResults_2ndorder use assess().

Value

A named vector of numeric values of length equal to the number of constructs in the model.
