Some years ago we used a program called PML to do Rasch analyses:
Gustaffson, J.-E., PML: A Computer Program for Conditional
Estimation and Testing the Rasch Model for Dichotomous Items.
Reports from the Institute of Education, University of Goteborg,
I think we got it from IEC ProGamma, so I tried www.gamma.rug.nl
and there I found:

MSP, Mokken Scale analysis for Polytomous Items, offers scaling
facilities for the nonparametric cumulative item response theory.
The program can be used for the
stepwise construction of one or more unidimensional scales from a
pool of items. It evaluates the model fit of a given scale,
including the assessment of its reliability
and gives suggestions to remove certain items that spoil the fit.
Also, it detects the extent to which the answer patterns follow
the cumulative Guttman scalogram
pattern, for an item order found from theory or from the data, by
Loevinger's H-values, with statistical significance tests added.
MSP is able to analyze and compare
several subgroups in one run, and performs various tests and
checks of the assumptions of monotone homogeneity and double
monotonicity, underlying the models.
