Unique rates are used when you’re referring to a specific reactant or product, and it’s the rate of disappearance or appearance of a substance divided by the stoichiometric coefficient, which is why it’s so specific. When you calculate average rate, coefficients aren’t taken into account. I hope that helps.
Average rate involves seeing how much reactant or product you make over time (average rate of consumption/formation). Unique rate involves dividing the concentration over time by the stoichiometric coefficient . Average looks at one particular time range
