increasing or a drop from the 1st to 2nd test are both acceptable trends generally. But going from a 94 on the 2nd test (improved over the first by 20 pts) to a 42? It could be due to a change in the level of difficulty (hard to say without seeing the class averages), but it generally shows a distracted or overconfident student.
