Confirmatory Factor Analysis using PLS-PM

By Rosina Pzena | Nov 04, 2017 05:16PM CET

I am a graduate student attempting to use XLSTAT to confirm a factor-analytic model. I was trained in using AMOS. For CFA in AMOS, MPlus, etc, error terms (as LVs) are provided for each manifest variable in the model. When I try to do this in XLSTAT, the model will not run and the error message says the model is cyclical. So: If I do not include the error terms, will the model fit statistics be accurate? if so... how do I include the error variables appropriately into the model so it can be run?

Hi Rosina,

No need to manually enter error terms in XLSTAT. They are automatically computed for each LV on each PLS dimension.
We hope you’ll be satisfied by the software!
