HI Stuart and Trevor

An alternative would be to take the measures mean and sd of the sample you already know their measures
and use UMEAN= mean  USCALE=sd .. I guess the item difficulties will be relative to this person scale . 
But anchoring in the person measures like Trevor said will be better ..
