1. Emerging. Reflection provides a cogent critique from a single perspective, but fails to see the broader system in which the issue or situation is embedded and other factors that may make change difficult to achieve. Students may provide some connections to the issue or discipline, but the connections are not deep or insightful. They perceive legitimate differences in viewpoint, interpretation, and choices and demonstrate a beginning ability to interpret evidence and draw reasonable conclusions.

1. Emerging. Reflection provides a cogent critique from a single perspective, but fails to see the broader system in which the issue or situation is embedded and other factors that may make change difficult to achieve. Students may provide some connections to the issue or discipline, but the connections are not deep or insightful. They perceive legitimate differences in viewpoint, interpretation, and choices and demonstrate a beginning ability to interpret evidence and draw reasonable conclusions.

Observations are more thorough and nuanced than at Level 1, but they tend to be situation-specific rather than tied to a broader context.
