It is shown that lisrel has much to offer in purifying the measure by testing the unidimensionality of the measurement instrument, and in cross-validation to investigate the convergent validity (within a method) and reliability, L allows a rigorous assessment of the stability of the construct and its measurement instrument, and it is a powerful methodology for assessing convergent validity across methods, discriminant validity, and nomological validity.
