Calculate the average variance extracted (AVE) as proposed by Fornell1981;textualcSEM. For details see the cSEM website
calculateAVE( .object = NULL, .only_common_factors = TRUE )
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
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
.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
For objects of class
A named vector of numeric values of length equal to the number of constructs in the model.
