 The standardized loadings are computed by multiplying the unstandardized coefficients by the model-implied standard deviation of the indicator divided by the standard deviation of the latent variable. The standardized loadings are computed by multiplying the unstandardized coefficients by the standard deviation of the latent variable divided by the model-implied standard deviation of the indicator.
