    Can an agency appraise an element at a performance level more than one level from the level at which a standard is established?

    Yes, provided the agency program provides for such levels to be assigned. That is, an element cannot be appraised at Outstanding based on a standard established at the Fully Successful level if the applicable program only provides for appraising elements at Unacceptable and Fully Successful.
