  • Developmental guidelines and checklists detail skills, behaviors, and academic expectations in one-sentence performance indicators.
  • Observational criteria is presented for each of the eight curriculum areas in the Outcomes Framework.
  • Scoring: Standards-based Developmental Checklist Performance Indicators are simply scored "Not Yet," "In Process," or "Proficient."
