I am trying to estimate a SEM with
Dep var = Latent var (intelligence) measured from five observed var (test scores) which are numerical and continuous
Two endogenous independent var - one categorical (Educational qualification) and the other ordinal (on 1-5 scale)
Other independent vars, mostly categorical
I have two questions:
1. Can I model SEM with two endogenous categorical/ordinal independent vars?
2. If not, would you suggest anything else?

Yes, you can for instance use the WLSMV estimator.
