Aguirre-Urreta and Marakas (A&M) suggest in their simulation " Revisiting Bias Due to Construct Misspeci-fication: Different Results from Considering Coefficients in Standardized Form, " that, like Jarvis et al. (2003), MacKenzie et al. (2005), and Petter et al. (2007) before them, bias does occur when formative constructs are misspecified as reflective. But A&M argue that the level of bias in prior simulation studies has been exaggerated. They parameterize their simulation models using… CONTINUE READING
