Dear Aga,

I think that the most meaningfull way to present your results would
be to plot the probabilities of belonging to the various groups for
diffrent values of your explanatory variable. In an ordered logit the
effect of an explanatory variable on the probability of belonging to
a group can first rise and than decline (or vise versa) even if the
explanatory variable is entered with only a linear term, I have no
idea how a quadratic term complicates that relationship.
