Winsteps performs Rasch analysis (including the dichotomous Rasch model 
=1-PL IRT model).

Winsteps also reports estimates of 2-PL item discrimination, 3-PL item 
lower asymptote (guessing) and 4-PL item upper asymptote (carelessness), 
but does not use those estimates to adjust the person measures (thetas).
