FOREWORD--This web site contains research on several topics: latent 
variables and their interactions, substantive research on relationship
terminations in buyer-seller and personal selling-employer relationships,
and substantive research in higher education.
              Please click on the desired web page:
              o Latent Variable Interactions and Quadratics: Research on interactions
                          in theoretical model (hypothesis) tests using structural equation 
                          analysis (LISREL, EQS, AMOS, etc.) with real-world data. Topics 
include estimating categorical (nominal) variables, and improving

measures that are in
serious trouble--ones with low Average
Variance Extracted, or low model-to-data fit, etc. o
Theoretical Model Testing with Latent Variables: Topics include improving Average Variance Extracted (AVE), estimating a latent
variable with only two indicators, and speeding up the "weeding"
(itemizing) of a measure so it "fits the data." o
(Buyer-Seller) Relationship Termination: Research on responses to
relationship problems: Exiting, Voice, Loyalty, Relationship Neglect,
Opportunism, and their antecedents, and
              o Higher Education: Research on Higher Education, including promotion and
tenure, and reusing one's data for a second paper to
help reduce the "time between papers."
