Convergent Validity is assessed using Average Variance Extracted
AVE value shall be over 0.50 for Convergent Validity to be Estbalished.
The AVE is equivalent to the communality of the construct
The AVE is defined as the grand mean value of the squared loadings of the indicators associated with the construct (i.e., the sum of the squared loadings divided by the number of indicators).
Convergent Validity will be high when items in a construct have high correlation
