You will not find a straight line, but a fuzzy line at best. Using common calibration (all items) you could use the method shown in BTD to find if you get above chance # of people deviating from y = x. Assuming that the items and  students fit of course.

The instrument consists of five subscales with items that used a five-point ordered response options. For the scoring, it is tedious in the part of the user if the scores shall be computed by subscale.  Thus, we plan to rasch analyze the entire scale (the 36 items together) and then produce the scores by respondents across items using Winsteps.  Then, from that scores, the user can easily compute the scores by subscale.  However, we afraid because Rasch analysis of the entire scale, instead of by subscale, might be wrong.  To check if we are not wrong, we do the two analyses as follows:
