Whatīs the correct word? Sudden unexpected doubt...

Whatīs the correct word? Sudden unexpected doubt...
Hi dear friends,
I īve been teaching English here in Portugal for a few years and somehow I īve managed to make and give lots of tests without having this problem. But now I īm teaching in a Kindergarten and the teachers asked me to use the headings they use for their tests but translated to English.
So they have a space where they write the test result, like "very good" or "good", and I īm trying to find the right word but none of them seem to fit... Should I use "mark", "appreciation", "result"...?
Please help me, I īm feeling dumb...
Thank you and have a nice weekend!

I would use mark but some people use grade

I īd use Mark with numbers and ASSESSMENT with Very Good, Good...

"Comment" is another possibility. I agree with teresapr that "mark" or "grade" would be used with a number or letter score.
