These posters work great with my Student Data Tracking Binders found in my store! Student's rate and date their level of understanding and their learning throughout a unit. They are tied to Marzano's levels of understanding. I use with my students across all subjects areas.

Each day in class we have a learning target. In order for the learning target to be meaningful to students, they must interact with it. My plan this year (for every learning target) is to have students rate themselves at the beginning of the lesson and again at the end.

In this resource you will find a letter version of the 4 point scale that can be printed and enlarged to put on the wall to help this process. I plan to cut out each box, post it on the wall and put graphics underneath.

At the end of this download you'll notice a rubric where the student can put their name and the learning target. There is also a scale that is all on one page with a place for comments. This is so that you can check in on essential skills or benchmarks periodically throughout the school year. I might even have the student rate themselves in pencil, and I might do my rating in pen. I'll add comments and feedback below.

Marzano's levels of understanding have been around for a long time, I hope this resource could help us all embed it into our classroom language.

This scale can be used before, during, and after instruction.

Use this classroom display to gauge your students' understanding of new concepts or recently learned material. Display this poster set in your classroom as a visual reference.

No matter what topic you are covering, you can quickly check students' understanding of any topic. You will also find individual student copies as well. My students love this!!

Let student's decide their learning. They can rate themselves with either a 4, 3, 2, or 1 on how they are understanding the curriculum.

4- I know it so well I can teach it to my friends.

3-Yes, I've got it!

2-I am almost there!

1-Not quite...but trying!
