The purpose of this study was to explore the use of a common item linking procedure using multiple-choice grammar items to link subgroups of examinees’ essays scored by independent pairs of raters. This procedure was tested as a means to provide a more equitable way to address deficiencies in essay judging plans as well as to evaluate the possibility of using a single rating for valid assessment of students’ essays. A total of 2449 examinees’ essay ratings, scored by 40 raters, and their responses to 40 MCQ grammar items were used as the data set in this study. The data were analyzed using FACETS version 3.48. The findings showed that the common item linking procedure using MCQ items provided not only the necessary links but also strong evidence that single ratings can yield similar measures as double ratings with these links in place. The use of this procedure can help resolve some of the issues surrounding essay scoring, particularly in large scale testing. The common item linking procedure has considerable promise as it has the potential to resolve some practical issues, such as time constraints, and the use of a large number of raters; as well as more serious validity issues such as rater errors and rater drift.
