Variable rated between 1 to 7

Hi all, Do you know how we should include a variable that has been rated by survey respondents (e.g. from 1 to 7) in SEM as a moderator? Will this be considered as categorical?

I do not know what I can do, loadings are ok though. I have removed some items, but still, the issue is there. The CI values for H...

Thanks a lot fo...

As I read posts, I need to test each moderator at a time, the question is should I test each on each relationship at a time or each moderator on both relationships? I think the second way (testing each modera...
