I've lost all frame of reference!

I've been in the dojo for almost nine months now and I can say without doubt that I am a better Ju jitsuka today than I was then. But I have no idea where I rank in relation to two weeks ago or even a month ago! I have a strong feeling that I'm not getting worse, but that's about the extent of my intuition on the matter.

I've never trained in anything where the progress was not in some way quantifiable (IE Amount of weight lifted or miles run), so I am a little lost on that front. The only thing I can be sure of is that if I keep coming to class, I will progress at whatever rate I can.
