Hypotheses of the study were rejected/accepted on the base of a criterion range of Path coefficients
([beta]) >=.20, F Square>.02, Q-Square .30, T Statistics>1.96 and P value 1.96, F2 >= .02, Q2
and Correlation Indices of Morphological Traits against Total Body Weight
The results of structural equations model and the amount of t statistics through which the significance of path coefficients
are investigated can be seen in Tab.
We further tested whether the difference of path coefficients
The values shown in parentheses in Fig.1 indicated the t values of the path coefficients
and the path coefficients
were statistically significant (t[greater than or equal to]1.96; pa$?0.05).
For structural model, it estimates and analyzed the path coefficients
between the constructs.
The second stage calculates the final estimates of coefficients (outer weights, loadings, and path coefficients
) using the ordinary least squares method for each partial regression in the model.
should not be interpreted as correlation coefficients.
Based on the new p values and effect sizes in the case of the age variable, in the tables of the path coefficients
and the p values, we note the following:
The path model results depicting the standardized path coefficients
among the latent variables are presented in Table 3.
Figure 1 illustrated the standardized path coefficients
for the revised model.
In the study, direct and indirect effects of different morphological traits were also determined through path coefficients
