Causal Indicator Models Have Nothing to Do with Measurement
Howell, Roy D.; Breivik, Einar
Measurement: Interdisciplinary Research and Perspectives, v14 n4 p167-169 2016
In this article, Roy Howell, and Einar Breivik, congratulate Aguirre-Urreta, M. I., Rönkkö, M., & Marakas, G. M., for their work (2016) "Omission of Causal Indicators: Consequences and Implications for Measurement," Measurement: Interdisciplinary Research and Perspectives, 14(3), 75-97. doi:10.1080/15366367.2016.1205935. They call it a detailed, and thoughtful work that is a definitive contribution that should go far in furthering the discussion of the lack of usefulness of causal-formative measurement models, which as Rhemtulla, van Bork, and Borsboom (2015) point out, have nothing to do with measurement.
