Features: Congeneric reliability is a unidimensional reliability coefficient based on a unidimensional confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) model.

Name: Congeneric reliability is called by a variety of names, general users usually call it composite reliability, and reliability researchers often call it omega. One of the reasons for this confusion is that studies that first proposed this coefficient (Jöreskog 1971) did not give this formula a name (Cho 2016). Jöreskog (1971) proposed a matrix-form formula, and the commonly known non-matrix formula appears in Werts et al. (1974).

Frequency of use: Congeneric reliability is the second most commonly used reliability coefficient after coefficient alpha (Cho 2016)

Accuracy: Congeneric reliability is the most accurate reliability coefficient along with the Feldt-Gilmer coefficient (Cho in press)

Computation: This function uses maximum likelihood as estimation, unstandardized covariance matrix as input, and lavaan package as software.
