A New Incremental Fit Index for General Structural Equation Models
- K. Bollen
- 1 February 1989
Assessing overall model fit is an important problem in general structural equation models. One of the most widely used fit measures is Bentler and Bonett's (1980) normed index. This article has three…
Conventional wisdom on measurement: A structural equation perspective.
The applicability of 5 conventional guidelines for construct measurement is critically examined: (a) Construct indicators should be internally consistent for valid measures, (b) there are optimal…
Latent curve models: A structural equation perspective
Preface. 1 Introduction. 1.1 Conceptualization and Analysis of Trajectories. 1.2 Three Initial Questions About Trajectories. 1.3 Brief History of Latent Curve Models. 1.4 Organization of the…
Redefine statistical significance
The default P-value threshold for statistical significance is proposed to be changed from 0.05 to 0.005 for claims of new discoveries in order to reduce uncertainty in the number of discoveries.
Bootstrapping Goodness-of-Fit Measures in Structural Equation Models
Assessing overall fit is a topic of keen interest to structural equation modelers, yet measuring goodness of fit has been hampered by several factors. First, the assumptions that underlie the…
Overall Fit in Covariance Structure Models: Two Types of Sample Size Effects
- K. Bollen
A controversial area in covariance structure models is the assessment of overall model fit. Researchers have expressed concern over the influence of sample size on measures of fit. Many contradictory…
Perceived Cohesion: A Conceptual and Empirical Examination
Most existing measures of cohesion attempt to objectively measure cohesion while neglecting individual group members' perceptions of their cohesion to a particular group. We propose that group…
An Empirical Evaluation of the Use of Fixed Cutoff Points in RMSEA Test Statistic in Structural Equation Models

There is little empirical support for the use of .05 or any other value as universal cutoff values to determine adequate model fit, regardless of whether the point estimate is used alone or jointly with the confidence interval.
