Re: Test Passing Standards - What is it?
(I'll make this short)
I think that a Sensei should and does know when a student is at a certain level, regardless of a test. However, even if their Sensei knows, the student in question may not, and has to prove it to themselves, also I think that part of the test not just knowing HOW to do a technique, but being able to know its Japanese name.
Please note that I have never tested, but have watched one.
