[Rasch] Rasch model affected by item type or not

Item later in the test tend to be affected due to fatigue, running out of
time, etc. and short tests are more sensitive to changes in items. But,
other than that, items won't change their relative locations regardless what
else is in the test. There may be random error. Just take any Rasch data
set, calibrate all items, then rerun with some items removed. Unless very
few items remain, a scatter plot of the non-removed items in these two cases
will parallel Y=X.
