It tells me the teacher wants students to focus on their learning.  Proficiency scales like the one above help students focus not only on where their learning is currently at, but it also informs them what it looks like when they’re reached the next level of understanding.  While this is a general scale, it’s a great tool for getting students to refocus from “how many points is this worth” to “how well have I learned this?”
