[R] (sem assunto)

Dear Edison,

There are several approaches you could take. One would be to use a
component+residual plot (see the cr.plots function in the car package, which
has a method for glm objects, including logistic regression), although that
doesn't provide a "test." Another approach would be to fit a nonparametric
regression model, such as a generalized additive model (see the mgcv and gam
packages), with smooth terms in place of linear terms, which can be used to
test linearity.

I hope this helps,
