Then that's just poor communication isn't it, not impossible to improve and easy to solve.

You should only ever be allowed to elect to go upwards IHMO.

I am not convinced showing a shooter their progress or lack of it, or their decline is a good thing. I'm sure no-one would deliberately dump a shoot to win some tin, and likewise who can say "oh i need to shoot a bit better today" and do it? So what's the point? As we've discussed, even if you move 20% in one shoot, you only move 1% in your grade, and for most, that won't make any difference.
If I know it changes before the GP and before the start of the W/L surely everyone does, if not then it's only a communication problem again.

A move of 20% would be more than 1% and it's also dependant on how many outliers are in your rolling 20.

More data is better than none, I use it to see how I'm doing and others don't give a fly V about it, that's up to them. I'd rather have more than none at all, it gives me goals to head for and tells me what I need to do, the outcome is often different but if presented properly it's always useful.
