In answer to my request for "a few examples of applications of Rasch in major tests and examinations", subscribers to the Rasch LISTSERV responded:

- many high-stakes medical certification exams in the USA, including the National Board of Medical Examiners (20+ years), the National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners, the American Society of Clinical Pathologists, and the National Council of State Boards of Nursing

- a number of school assessment programs in the USA, including Vancouver, WA, Public Schools and the Portland, OR, Public Schools

- statewide assessment programs of all eight states and territories of Australia, including NSW basic skills tests

- the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (the largest international achievement study ever undertaken)

- the 1996 National School English Literacy Survey (Australia)

- many competency tests, including the Graduate Australian Medical School Admissions Test, Special Tertiary Admissions Test, and English language tests such as IELTS and ACCESS

- equating of an English test in the Guangdong Province of China (8 years)

- many diagnostic tests, including the Peabody Test, KeyMath, Woodcock-Johnson, DART, TORCH, and British Ability Scales.
