Subject:      logit linearity in ordinal logistic

Hi all,

One of the assumptions of logistic regression when using a continuous predictor is that the variable is liner in the log odd of the DV. The way I have been doing this in SPSS for 2-category logistic regression is by taking the contiunous variable and making quartiles or quintiles out of it and then sticking it a logistic model with the DV. if the ORs increase or decrease linearly for each category of the DV then I say this is linear in the log odds and the assumption is met. Is this the same approach that needs to be taken for ordinal logistic regression or is there a more streamlined method of testing this assumption that i'm missing?

Thanks for any ideas.
