IT Jargon please: newbies and other skill levels

  Stymied 17:57 05 Sep 2004

I'm drawing up a self-assessment sheet (of their computer skills) for some Year 7s, (i.e. 11 year olds) and I'd prefer to avoid descriptors like "level 1" and "level 2". I'm after something a bit cooler.

Can anyone tell me if there are any terms that could be used for the next levels up from "newbie"? I'm sure they exist, but it's been a long weekend and I can't think of any. I'm looking, ideally, for terms which, like newbie, originate in IT jargon.

I am going to need four levels, by the way, but I'd be grateful to anyone who comes up with just one suggestion.

Can't think of the middle ones, but top is 'Geek'
