## What is a good Pclose value?

PCLOSE provides the p-value of the null hypothesis that the estimate (0.033) is below 0.05. This is clearly not approaching significance – you can therefore not reject the null hypothesis that your RMSEA is below 0.05 – which is a good thing.

## What is RMSEA in Amos?

RMSEA. Root Mean. Square Error of. Approximation. A parsimony-adjusted index.

**What is an acceptable RMSEA value?**

It has been suggested that RMSEA values less than 0.05 are good, values between 0.05 and 0.08 are acceptable, values between 0.08 and 0.1 are marginal, and values greater than 0.1 are poor [8]. Therefore, the RMSEA value of 0.074 in this sample indicates an acceptable fit.

### What is Pclose in SEM?

p of Close Fit (PCLOSE) This measure is a one-sided test of the null hypothesis is that the RMSEA equals . 05, what is called a close-fitting model. Such a model has specification error, but “not very much” specification error. The alternative, one-sided hypothesis is that the RMSEA is greater than 0.05.

### What does RMSEA of 0 mean?

As you may have grasped, an RMSEA of zero and a CFI of one does not mean there is no discrepancy between the sample and model-implied covariance matrices. Rather RMSEA will be zero and CFI will be one whenever the chi-square statistic is equal to or less than the degrees of freedom.

**What is a good model fit Amos?**

A value of 1 represents a perfect fit. A value ≥ 0.9 indicates a reasonable fit (Hu & Bentler, 1998). A value of ≥ 0.95 is considered an excellent fit (Kline, 2005).

#### What does Rmsea stand for?

Root Mean Squared Error of Approximation

Root Mean Squared Error of Approximation (RMSEA) RMSEA is a measure of the estimated discrepancy between the population and model-implied population covariance matrices per degree of freedom (139).

#### What is CFI in Amos?

Comparative fit index (CFI) In this context, fit refers to the difference between the observed and predicted covariance matrices, as represented by the chi-square index. In short, the CFI represents the ratio between the discrepancy of this target model to the discrepancy of the independence model.

**What does the RMSEA tell us?**

RMSEA is the root mean square error of approximation (values of 0.01, 0.05 and 0.08 indicate excellent, good and mediocre fit respectively, some go up to 0.10 for mediocre). In Mplus, you also obtain a p-value of close fit, that the RMSEA < 0.05.

## What is RMSEA SEM?

RMSEA is an absolute fit index, in that it assesses how far a hypothesized model is from a perfect model. On the contrary, CFI and TLI are incremental fit indices that compare the fit of a hypothesized model with that of a baseline model (i.e., a model with the worst fit).

## What is Pclose?

DESCRIPTION. The pclose() function closes a stream that was opened by popen(), waits for the command to terminate, and returns the termination status of the process that was running the command language interpreter.

**What does the Rmsea tell us?**

### What does CFI of 1 mean?

Is this CFA appropriate? In a CFA, we have very good fit indices. For example, the CFI = 1. This, however, is not a just-identified model because degrees of freedom is not 0.

### How do I know if Amos fits my model?

CMIN/DF = discrepancy divided by degree of freedom. The value of interest here is the CMIN/DF for the default model and is interpreted as follows: If the CMIN/DF value is ≤ 3 it indicates an acceptable fit (Kline, 1998). If the value is ≤ 5 it indicates a reasonable fit (Marsh & Hocevar, 1985)

**What is Rmsea SEM?**

**What is Popen and Pclose?**

General description. The pclose() function closes a stream that was opened by popen(), waits for the command specified as an argument in popen() to terminate, and returns the status of the process that was running the shell command.

## How many arguments are accepted by Pclose ()?

one parameter

The pipe specified by popen() function is sent as a parameter to the pclose() function and it returns the termination status of the process that was run, or -1 in case of an error. Parameters Used: The pclose() function in PHP accepts only one parameter.

## What is a good CFI value?

CFI is a normed fit index in the sense that it ranges between 0 and 1, with higher values indicating a better fit. The most commonly used criterion for a good fit is CFI ≥ . 95 (Hu & Bentler, 1999; West et al., 2012).
