Q: What is the difference between benchmark and standard and Criteria ?
A: A benchmark is a thing against which other things are measured against. For example, a teacher using another student's homework as a benchmark to judge their other students' homework.

A standard is something approved (either by a higher authority or a very large group of people) as the desired way of doing something. For example, a standard in computer text representation is Unicode.

A criteria is a list of things that we compare something else to to see if they align.
