    What year level is this for? (I assume Year 3.)

    • Royce (Teach Starter)

      Hey Ami, thank you for reaching out to us. The rubric criteria has been openly written to be applied to years 3 to 6. For example, in 'Work to Expectations, Ideas are appropriate, effective and show some elaboration.' This could be applied to all year levels but in differing ways.
