    I agree against the use of stars, for sure.

    Simple dots could do the trick, but a line of 10 dots is rather long. Cutting some of them in half is so close to how stars are used, its too similar.

    What about having a numbered system, where the user sees the number rating?

      Numbers don't mean anything without reference. How about just telling the user? Easy, moderate, hard. If you need more level you could use 6 step bar alongside the word to give a visual que.
