The Rubric and Rating Scale <ul><li>Performance Descriptors </li></ul><ul><li>Developing – Demonstrated adequate growth during the period of performance, but did not demonstrate competence on standard(s) of performance </li></ul><ul><li>Proficient – Demonstrated basic competence on standards of performance </li></ul><ul><li>Accomplished – Exceeded basic competence on standards for performance most of the time </li></ul>
    4. 4. <ul><li>Performance Descriptors, cont. </li></ul><ul><li>Distinguished – Consistently and significantly exceeded basic competence on standards of performance </li></ul><ul><li>Not Demonstrated – Did not demonstrate competence on, or adequate growth toward, achieving standard(s) of performance </li></ul><ul><li>[NOTE: If the “Not Demonstrated” rating is used, the evaluator must provide a comment about why it was used.] </li></ul>
