Test Passing Standards - What is it?
I recently tested for a new kyu rank and I was thining, what should be the standard for passing a test? Should it be objective, in that as long as one can do the technique, then the student should pass, or should it be more subjective/individualized, i.e. directed toward the capability of the individual test taker? In other words, should students be tested based on how well they can perform (and their improvement since their last test) or should it be based on an objective level/minimum standard for performance that would apply equally to all test takers?
