satisfactory or average
Explanation: In a scale of Excellent/Good/Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory/Fail. An alternative might be Average, but just that, not "just the average" as a previous answerer suggested. The grading suggests that the performance is OK, or borderline, but not below an acceptable level, however disappointing that level might be.
