We do rank + a stripe for the half way mark. The kids take an abbreviated test to earn the stripe. We put some colored tape on their belt for the stripe.

Excellent idea - back in my uncles Karate days (he is only 3 years older than me), I remember that he had like 4 taped stripes on each belt he had.

Kind of an incentive, and kids like to have their progress marked.
{Well some adults too.)
