Note: Point values listed are the maximum that can be attained for that performance level. For example, if a student’s Problem Statement meets all of the requirements for the "Accomplished" level but none of the requirements for the "Exemplary" performance level, then 8 points is the most he/she could receive. However, if the student did meet some of the requirements of the "Exemplary" level, then he/she could receive up to 10 points.
