Recent events at the dojo have got me thinking about testing, and those requirements needed to receive a passing grade. To those with experience on the judge's side of the process I ask, by what standard do you evaluate those that are before you? Is there an Imperical standard, and if so, how is the standard determined. Is evaluation done on a case by case basis? Is it some combination of the two, or are other methods used to determine who is, and who is not ready to advance?
