ave: Average Variance Extracted indices for matrixpls results

Description Usage Arguments Value References See Also


The matrixpls method for the generic function ave computes Average Variance Extracted indices for the model using the formula presented by Fornell and Larcker (1981).


ave(object, ...)



matrixpls estimation result object produced by the matrixpls function.


All other arguments are ignored.
