A user’s manual is available here that demonstrates how to use GeSCA.


1. Bagozzi’s organizational identification example
(Many thanks to Professor Richard Bagozzi for kindly permitting us to use this dataset)

  • A sample dataset can be downloaded here as a .xls file.
  • A sample model file can be downloaded here.

Notice :

* Note that if Google Chrome does not allow Java to run, please use MS Internet Explorer.
* Attention: Please follow these instructions to run the program with recent Java versions.
1. When users enter GeSCA, they may see a Java popup window asking “Block potentially unsafe components from being run?”,  please choose “No” to run the software.

2. Important update (November 3, 2010): We fixed a bug regarding inconsistency in scaling observed and latent variables. In the previous version, observed variables were standardized while latent variables normalized. We now normalize both observed and latent variables. This bug was unlikely to affect parameter estimates substantially in most cases, whereas it might result in less accurate FIT and AFIT values. We thank Dr. Jörg Henseler for his personal inquiries and comments that greatly facilitated detecting the scaling inconsistency.

3. Mac users can run GeSCA in both Firefox and Safari. However, when they run GeSCA in Safari, they will see the screen flicker every second. This does not affect the result of analysis.

4. Users must have Java installed to run GeSCA. If Java is not installed, a small red X will appear on the screen. You can download Java here.

5. Internet Explorer is required to execute the application.
