<assessment> The range of scores possible for the student to achieve on a test or an assessment.

Performance assessments typically use a 4 to 9 point scale, compared to a scale of 100 or more with traditional examinations.

Scales may be applied to individual items or performances, for example: checklists, yes or no; numerical values, 1-6; or descriptive, i.e., the student presented multiple points of view to support her essay.

Scaled scores occur when participants' responses to any number of items are combined and used to establish and place students on a single scale of performance.
