  1. CR composite reliability, AVE average variance extracted (squared factor loadings averaged)
  2. Diagonals show square roots of AVE; values in italics may indicate discriminant validity issues (i.e. factors other than the parent factor may explain more of the item variance)
  3. aAcceptable levels for AVE > 0.5 and CR ≥ AVE
