How do I get/calculate the predicted value of an outcome in a multilevel ordinal logistic regression? Even outside Mplus. Where are the intercepts?

I should clarify. I was trying to get the predicted value (either categorical or continuous is fine)of the outcome for every case/observation.

Thanks.

If you have a binary DV the intercept is the negative of the threshold. You have an ordinal DV with 3 categories so two thresholds. You can computed the predicted probability for different random intercept values as shown on slide 66 of our Topic 7 handout, where slides 60-66 deal with understanding two-level logistic regression. See handout and video on our website.
