The Theme Statement
i = incomplete, missing

incomplete, missing, vague, too short, not enough information
2 = basic, approaching proficient

You have identified an a possible topic that could be a theme, but you have not made a clear statement, e.g.: "the value of friendship" - but what is the author saying about the value of friendship

AND/OR - the theme you tried to identify is based on just one section, part, or scene in the story, not the entire story
Level 3 - proficient

You have identified a key theme from this story, though your explanation was too specific to this one story, and/or not generalized enough to apply to other stories, probably you just need to revise the theme statement a bit to be more concise:

e.g. the different attitudes of people affect your life by teaching you different things whether for the better or worse.

Becomes: People learn something from all relationships, good or bad.
4 - approaching advanced

You have identified a key theme from this story in a concise way, your theme statement could be used by others when examining other stories.
5 - Advanced

You have identified a key theme from this story in a concise way, your theme statement could be used by others when examining other stories. Moreover, you have connected the theme to other writers, or in some way talked about how this theme has been used in the past, or connects to an ideology or belief system of the author.
Evidence/Support
i = incomplete, missing

incomplete, missing, vague, too short, not enough information
2 = basic, approaching proficient

- you've given vague & general support, e.g.: the main character was angry - this is too vague, explain what they were angry about, what they said and did, and to whom, and why, and how this supports the theme.
- likewise, your support came from just one part of the story, you haven't shown how the theme is throughout the whole novel.
Level 3 - proficient

- you've mentioned 2-3 events (things people said and did) from the story that connect to the theme you identified
4 - approaching advanced

-the support you give are many (4+) specific events (things people said & did) throughout the whole story, and these events clearly relate to the theme you identified
5 - Advanced

-the support you give are specific events (things people say & do) throughout the whole story, and these events clearly relate to the theme you identified
- the support you give goes beyond the characters, you've included some of the other elements of literature as support (mood, tone, setting, plot structure)
