CB-SEM Module 6: Convergent and Discriminant Validity using Measurement Models

Dear all:

Welcome to Module 6 of my lecture series on CB-SEM.

In this module, I discuss about computing Composite Reliability (CR) and Average Variance Extracted (AVE), two important metrics that are used to assess convergent and discriminant validity of constructs (and factors) in social science research.

This module contains 8 lectures. The introduction to this module is available at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mrYcOVMlcRI&list=PLTfj4qMbtEirAR3zi2Noea3wQrEKq5Bmn&index=33

The details of the lectures are as follows:

Lecture 1: Composite reliability and its computation (Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zo0RpBCLPnA&list=PLTfj4qMbtEirAR3zi2Noea3wQrEKq5Bmn&index=34)

Lecture 2: AVE and its computation (Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGTJ536u7BU&list=PLTfj4qMbtEirAR3zi2Noea3wQrEKq5Bmn&index=35)
