How to Conduct Variance-Based SEM with SmartPLS

How to Conduct Variance-Based SEM with SmartPLS

Variance-based SEM is a type of SEM that is based on the covariance between the observed variables. SmartPLS can be used to conduct variance-based SEM by following these steps:

  1. Create a new project in SmartPLS.Import your data into SmartPLS and create a new project.
  2. Specify the measurement model.The measurement model specifies the relationships between the latent variables and the observed variables.
  3. Specify the structural model.The structural model specifies the relationships between the latent variables.
  4. Estimate the model.SmartPLS will estimate the model parameters and provide you with a variety of outputs, including path coefficients, standard errors, and p-values.
  5. Interpret the results.The results of the variance-based SEM analysis can be used to test your hypotheses and draw conclusions about the relationships between the latent variables.
