For variance-based structural equation modeling, such as partial least squares, the Fornell-Larcker criterion and the examination of cross-loadings are the dominant approaches for evaluating discriminant validity. Since Campbell and Fiske (1959) defined convergent validity and discriminant validity, the tests for convergent validity and discriminant validity have evolved from checking the “high” and “low” correlation coefficients in the multitrait-multimethod context to specific rules of thumbs suggested by Fornell and Larcker (1981) in a multitrait-monomethod context.
