Have Proficiency Based Grading Scale Available in Rubrics Instead of Numbers

As districts switch from traditional grades to competency-based grades, it would be helpful to mark students in terms of their proficiency level instead of a numeric score. Instead of 0-10 the breakdown would be No Evidence, In Progress, Partially Proficient, Proficient, and Proficient with Distinction. As you move the curser to the right, instead of a number appearing in the box, one of these terms appear.

It may not automatically calculate a final total (if the assessment has more than one question), but having a slider at the end of the assessment could allow the teacher to determine proficiency level overall OR the various terms could be assigned a numeric value to allow the system to automatically calculate a proficiency level.

    I love the idea of proficiency based grading but rather than the terms mentioned above, I would love the ability to create our own terms for proficiency levels.
