# Analyse data with ordinal and continuous independent variables and a categorical dependent variable

I'm trying to find a test that will allow me to test the relationship between a categorical dependent variable and several independent variables that are both continuous (interval) and ordinal.

If there is no such test, it would also makes theoretical sense for me to turn the variable "around". That is, I could use a statistical test (if such exists) that allows me to test the effect of a categorical independent variable on several dependent variables that are both continuous and ordinal.

I hope this makes sense and would be grateful for any help.
