Meaning for this part of the Assessment
 
(1) Knows without counting for 3 (out of 3) equations, or (2) uses related combinations for 3 (out of 3) equations, or any mix of (1) and (2) for 3 (out of 3) equations..
 P+
(1) Knows without counting for 2 (out of 3) equations, or (2) uses related combinations for 2 (out of 3) equations, or uses any mix of (1) and (2) for 2 (out of 3) equations
Knows without counting for 1 (out of 3) equations, or uses related combinations for 1 (out of 3) equations. 
 P-
Knows without counting, or uses a related combination, or counts on for 1 equations; may count all for 1 equation or make 1 error.

Counts all 2 (out of 3 times), may have 1 error.
 
Counts all 3 (out of 3) times, or makes 2 or 3 errors.

Knows total without counting or uses what is known about one combination to figure out all 3 of the combinations within the range being assessed.  May have no errors.
 P+
Knows total without counting or uses what is known about one combination to figure out another combination for 2 of the 3 combinations within the range being assessed.  May have no errors.
Adds by counting on for 2 or more of the 3 combinations within the range being assessed.  May count all once and may have 1 error.
 
Adds by counting all for 2 of the 3 combinations within the range being assessed.  May have 1 error.
