Factors such as teacher experience, number of contact hours, and school context (remote, hybrid, etc.) will all affect student performance.  Please read this article for more information about how we came to make these recommendations:  What Standards should I set for my language students? by Elicia Cárdenas (Comprehensible Classroom).
