## Goodness of Fit (GoF)

### Description

Calculate the Goodness of Fit (GoF) proposed by Tenenhaus et al. (2004).
Note that, contrary to what the name suggests, the GoF is **not** a
measure of model fit in the sense of SEM. See e.g. Henseler and Sarstedt (2012)
for a discussion.

### Usage

```
calculateGoF(
.object = NULL
)
```

### Arguments

`.object` |
An R object of class cSEMResults resulting from a call to |

### Details

The GoF is inherently tied to the common factor model. It is therefore unclear how to meaningfully interpret the GoF in the context of a model that contains constructs modeled as composites.

### Value

A single numeric value.
