I recommend the spelling Likert, given that the term refers to a person, Rensis Likert. Some people would use each such variable as if it were a quantitative predictor; others would use a set of factor variables. On the information you give it sounds more like the second.

Dear All,

I have a question on how to add a variable that includes items measured by likert scale to the estimation model.

For instance, in the data there is one question that measures the objectives of innovation activities. The answers to the question include 8 items that have been measured by 1-4 scale. I will split them into two headings as they focus on two types of objectives. Thus, for each 4 item how do I add them to the model?
