Help students visualize learning and growth by applying verbs around levels of ability to the ascent of a mountain. Enlarge this chart as a poster to track student or class growth in different standards. Use the chart to guide the types of questions you ask students to complete in order to show levels of mastery in the standard being assessed. Allow students to create their own assessments or evaluation of their learning based on the verbs to show you their mastery on specific standards. This is an easier way for students to grasp the stages of mastery of a skill or standard, and encourage them to persevere to make it to the top!
