Here is a chart from the American String Teacher's Association detailing the national expectations for string players at various levels.
Please note that the 7th - 10th grade expectations are the same, and in the 10th grade year a magical transition is made from knowing 10 keys to knowing 24, knowing 3 positions to knowing 10 (violin/viola) or 14 (cello) or 18 (bass).  [Also, I am fairly certain that 5th-8th graders are expected to have good 'tone' production!]
