I've been part of the testing board for many tests and in a few different organizations.

Some were true tests of ability and character. Others were to just show everyone what the instructor already knew about the testee. The worst is when you see someone pass, and you know it is weakening the art.

But, I don't ever think it was just empty ceremony.
