Jean-Benoit,

merci! That's a very thorough explanation. I've no doubts that I have
a small sample problem whichever way you will turn it. I tried Rasch
model with -xtlogit- (or -xtmelogit-), and the results were
essentially a slightly curved version of the total number correct.

One clarification: you said,

If those are just difficult problems, then I should expect only the
top students to answer them. Why does this create violation of local
independence?
