When outcomes are ordered categorical, a model using an ordinal effect size measure is a good alternative of the cumulative logit model to compare several independent group differences. We present a method of constructing simultaneous confidence intervals for the ordinal effect size measures, using the studentized range distribution with the score test statistic. A simulation study shows that the proposed method performs well in terms of coverage probability, and it seems better than the method using a Bonferroni correction for Wald-type statistics and methods that account for the dependencies among pairwise ordinal effect size measures using the multivariate normal distribution (or the multivariate t-distribution for small samples).
