Many researchers are interested in using structural equation models to test theoretical relations among multidimensional constructs; however, logistical constraints often prevent researchers from obtaining multiple measures. The current study examines the implications for such models when a latent variable is extracted from carefully constructed parcels of items obtained from a single multidimensional measure of the multidimensional target construct. Two parceling methods are compared. One is… CONTINUE READING
