metadata.artigo.dc.description.abstract: A range of indicators, such as the average variance extracted (AVE), is commonly used to validate constructs. In statistics, AVE is a measure of the amount of variance that is captured by a construct in relation to the amount of variance due to measurement error. These conventional indices are formed by factor loadings resulting from estimated least squares or maximum likelihood regressions. Thus, a new proposition that provides new factor loadings may result in a more informative AVE index. Consequently, this study consists of the improvement of the index by using adaptive regressions. A Monte Carlo simulation study was performed considering different numbers of outliers generated by distributions with symmetry deviations and excess kurtosis and sample sizes defined as n = 50, 100, and 200. The conclusion was that, in formative structural models, the adaptive linear regression (ALR) method showed good efficiency for correctly specified models. The results obtained from the ALR method for models with specification errors showed low efficiency, as expected.
