Basic Learning Goal Scale
4 Demonstrations of learning that go above and beyond what was explicitly taught in class
3 The learning goal or state standard- This is where we want students to be!
2 Foundational knowledge, simple procedures, isolated details, vocabulary- what students should know before getting to a 3
1 With help, students can perform at level 2
