Dear all,

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.
