- Content Knowledge
- Skill proficiencies
I personally am in favor of the Rubric Levels from the Utah CRTs. It still assigns a number, but the category names are much more in line with the expectations of both today's parents and today's students.
- Substantial Mastery
- Sufficient Mastery
- Partial Mastery
- Minimal Mastery
The other thing I like about this is if I used this rating system for the entire class not just end of level tests and specific assignments, it would more accurately reflect what students are really capable of both in content knowledge and in skill proficiencies.
For just a flavor of this see my journal rubric be patient with any grammar or spelling errors.
