# calculateHTMT

##### Internal: HTMT

Compute the heterotrait-monotrait ratio of correlations (HTMT) based on Henseler2015;textualcSEM.

- Keywords
- internal

##### Usage

```
calculateHTMT(
.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

Similarly to the Cronbach's alpha, the HTMT is a consistent estimator for the construct correlations in case of tau equivalent measurement models.

The HTMT is used to assess discriminant validity.

The function is only applicable to objects inheriting class `cSEMResults_default`

.
For objects of class `cSEMResults_multi`

and `cSEMResults_2ndorder`

use `assess()`

.

##### Value

A lower tringular matrix of HTMT values.
