Re: Test Passing Standards - What is it?

I look at several things:
1. Do they know the technique?
2. Do they perform it at a level approximating where their grade is-good kihon waza.
3. I also look at posture, distancing, relaxation (if there is such a thing on a test), martial presence, control, extension, etc.

Obviously, they are somewhat subjective but its a starting point.
