Passing Averages and Judge Requirements are for Standard Tests.  Number of patterns is per TR 43.05 for the "with partner" dances and for Solo Dance Tests (TR 45.02). The solo when required as part of a standard dance test is 2 patterns (TR 43.05b).  All adult dance tests and masters dance tests are danced only with a partner (TR 43.04).  Partners for all Standard, Adult, and Masters tests may be selected from dancers without regard to their dance test accomplishments (TR  44.02).  Mixed couples are preferred, but tests may be taken with same gender partner provided that the partner is the test skater's same gender coach (TR 44.01a).
