Thank you for your question, Juanito.

Ben Wright's summary of raw-scores vs. linear measures at 
http://www.rasch.org/rmt/rmt61n.htm may help.

For the test constructor, an obvious advantage of Rasch is the ease with 
which Rasch methods accommodate missing data.

For the consumer of test results, an obvious advantage is that Rasch 
produces pictures (maps) of performances and of the latent variables.
