Media capabilities as a comprehensive construct for research on media choice: Assessment of a measurement model
Unformatted Document Text:  Running head: Assessment of media capabilities model 18 MI pointed out, there were suggested correlations between error terms: informativeness and timeliness (MI = 53.87), interactivity and informativeness (MI = 17.23), user control and entertainment (MI = 12.10). The reasons for the correlations of the error terms are not difficult to understand. In particular, a respondent who highly demand for information gratification tended to have low tolerance to the low timeliness and would like to seek for information themselves through news medium that is highly interactive. Similarly, other four correlation links were added to form the final theoretical model. The revised model was tested again, and turned out to have a reasonable fit (χ2 (34)=74.56; CFI=0.98; NFI=0.99 RMSEA=0.04, CMIN/DF=2.19). Examining convergent validity and discriminant validity To evaluate convergent validity, the size of factor loadings, the value for Composite Reliabilities (CR), and the value for variance extracted (VE) from AMOS output were used. Convergent validity assesses the degree to which a measure correlates highly with other measures designed to measure the same construct (Churchill, 1979). Thus, convergent validity is achieved if different items used to measure the same construct obtain strongly correlated scores. As shown in Table 2, we observed preferable factor loadings for individual items on respective measure, which were shown in Tables 2. Specifically, 10 out of the 12 item loadings were greater than 0.7 and the item with the lowest loading was just 0.67. Additionally, the average percentage of variance extracted (AVE) in terms of corresponding constructs were
