Usimulate <- function(theta.pop, WfdList) {
#  USIMULATE generates an Ntheta.pop by N matrix of random score index
#  values for N test questions and Ntheta.pop values of theta.pop
#  located at the score index values in SCRFINE.
#  The probabilities for each question are generated by interpolation
#  over the score values in SCRFINE of the probabilities in the MI
#  columns of matrix Pmati.
