I want to calculate the variance explained by a 2nd order CFA factor: Is it correct to calculate the mean square of the betas (factor and variable variances are 1) of the total indirect effects of the 2nd order factor on the observed variables? (How) can I get a significance test for the variance explained?
Thanks! However, I meant the overall amount of variance that the second-order factor explains in the solution. I have seen the R-squares for the primaries, but I would like to get the overall for the secondary (with significance level).
