Rubrics are the key to making good projects, portfolios and exhibitions: "Not there yet" is better than "incomplete" or "unsatisfactory"

Look at these definitions or labels that an article about  rubrics gives

DEVELOP A RATING SCALE.

Rating scales can include either numerical or descriptive labels.  Usually, a rating scale consists of an even number of performance levels.  If an odd number is used, the middle level tends to become a catch-all category. 
On the chart below, the highest level of performance is described on the left.   A few possible labels for a four-point scale include:
4
3
2
1
4 points
3 points
1 point
0 points
Exemplary
Excellent
Acceptable
Unacceptable
Exceeds expectations
Meets expectations
Progressing
Not there yet
Superior
Good
Fair
Needs work
Excellent
Good
Needs improvement
Unacceptable
Sophisticated
Highly competent
Fairly competent
Not yet competent

DEVELOP INDICATORS OF QUALITY.


Incomplete 
On the way
More is needed

Anything is better than "unacceptable."
