Grading Rubric 1-3 A 3 shows that a student demonstrates mastery of the skills and concepts. A 2 shows that a student is making progress toward the skills and concepts. A 1 shows that a student is struggling to make progress toward the skills and concepts. The numbers represent progress to the end goal.
