  • Bronze (achieved when the examinee earns at least a Level 3 score on each of three assessments);
  • Silver (achieved when the examinee earns at least a Level 4 score on each of three assessments);
  • Gold (achieved when the examinee earns at least a Level 5 score on each of three assessments); and
  • Platinum (achieved when the examinee at least a Level 6 score on each of three assessments).
