Here is a culture where scores and ranks are so often assigned, not on merit, but are handed out based on seniority. Or arbitrary quotas unrelated to performance. Or teachers are told to have all grades averaged out to 80, or no scores over 90 will be given. Or scores and awards are rotated among individuals and departments, so that they have no meaning. Or awards are bought, not earned in any way.
