We used to have a skills inventory questionaire that asked you to rate your own skills on a scale something like this. Sorry I don't remember how many levels it had or the exact wording:
Can perform clearly defined tasks with supervision
Can perform tasks independently with some guidance
... all the way up to ...
Is a valuable resource for help and advice, publishes in magazines, authors books, teaches classes, is recognized in the industry
You might be able to use things like that to define beginner, expert, etc.

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
