Dear List members,
  I'd be thankful for your expert comments on this.
  I have Rasch analysed a language test which is called the “cloze 
test”. It has the following form:
  “The English language today _____ many distinct centres, 
self-governing ____ with their own standards. The two ____ important are, of ____, 
the United Kingdom in terms of ____, and the United States in ____ of 

  The students are to supply the missing words in the text. There are 4 
texts and each have 25 gaps.
  I have used rating scale model. Each text is a polytomous item with 
25 categories.
  There is disordering in the thresholds of the test (but not in the 
average measures).
  How can this be interpreted in the context of a cloze test? 
  Thanks in adavnce
