How the Bucket Rating System Works

We have a complicated rating system of one to five paint buckets.

1 Bucket= Not worth the investment.

2 Buckets= Shows promise, but I’ve seen better.

3 Buckets= Good. Worth a try.

4 Buckets= Great! Will get lots of use in the classroom!

5 Buckets= Love it! Need it! Gotta have it!
