A user’s manual is available here that demonstrates how to use WEB GESCA.

1. How to use WEB GESCA

A. Sample data and model
Bergami and Bagozzi’s (2000) organizational identification data are used for illustrative purposes. The number of cases is equal to 305. The model specified for the data is displayed in Figure 1 (No residual terms are displayed in the figure). As shown in the figure, this model consists of four latent variables and 21 reflective indicators. Specifically, Organizational Prestige (Org_Pres) is measured by eight indicators (cei1 – cei8), Organizational Identification (Org_Iden) by six indicators (ma1 – ma6), Affective Commitment-Joy (AC_Joy) by four indicators (orgcmt1, 2, 3 and 7), and Affective Commitment – Love (AC_Love) by three indicators (orgcmt5, 6, and 8).

The latest java plug in (Java 7u51) creates a problem for GeSCA.

One way to solve it is to make an exception rule for our server 50.116.62.169 (sem-gesca.org). 
•If you are using a Windows operating system, click on Start Button, then choose Control Panel.

•Enter "Java" in the search text area on the top right of the window that appears. This will get you to the Java Control Panel.

•If you are using a Mac operating system, click on the apple icon, choose "system preferences" and 
click on the "Java" icon to get to the Java Control Panel.*a helpful link for Mac users*

•Once you have opened the Java Control Panel, click on the 'Security' tab.
•Click on the 'Edit Site List', then click on the 'Add' Button and type in the following text.
http://50.116.62.169 
http://www.sem-gesca.com 
http://www.sem-gesca.com/gsca.php 
http://www.sem-gesca.org 
http://www.sem-gesca.org/gsca.php 
Click "OK" and restart your computer. Then GeSCA should work.

In some instances, the 'Edit Site List' button will not be visible.
This often occurs when more than one version of the Java plug-in is installed on your computer (including the latest one - java7u51). In that case, it is necessary to uninstall all the old versions of java except the latest one (java7u51). Then the 'Edit Site List' button should become visible. 

Thanks for using GeSCA !
