I've noticed this situation recently:
The chief pilot will walk into a room where one of the lower rung flight instructors are hanging out and say, "I need you to sign off Fred to take his commercial written".
The low time flight instructor at most has only said hi to Fred one or two times in his life and doesn't know anything about his flying ability or knowledge.
Is this normal practice? Do the results of written tests tarnish the CFI's record if they keep failing them?
