The added-variable plot, partial-residual plot, and constructed-variable plot are three useful diagnostic procedures in assessing the accuracy of a normal linear model. The first two have been extended to the generalized linear model. For detecting nonlinearity of variables, I extend the last one. An example is given for illustration.
