For the analysis of square contingency tables with ordered categories, it may be useful for applying some kinds of asymmetry model when the symmetry model does not hold. Tahata and Tomizawa (2011) considered the linear asymmetry model. In the present paper, the extended linear asymmetry model is proposed. The model indicates that the log-odds of symmetric cells are expressed as polynomial function of parameter. Also, the symmetry model is separated into two models and the relationship between test statistics is given.
