Does anybody know what the Jedi trials are. They are mentioned in the films but never told what they are.

I think I am thinking about when Qui-gon is talking about anakin and yoda says he can't have 2 padawans so qui-gon says Obi-wan is ready to take the trials.

I read in another thread they involve facing your fears, so:
Is that right about the trail?
Is there anything eles to do in the trials?
Who tests you?

I'm done

Jedi Trials
this was the name given to the series of milestones a Jedi padawan learner had to successfully complete to earn the promotion to the status of Jedi Knight. Before the trials could begin, a student had to first construct their own lightsaber and demonstrate proficiency in wielding it, both from an offensive standpoint as well as its use in self-defense. Among the later trials was a demonstration of an individual's facility with the three aspects of the Force: alter, control, and sense. Knowledge of the Jedi Code and its application and the use of sound judgement were also key trials. Lastly, a student had to accept and complete a solo mission, without instruction or guidance from their Master. This mission could be prescribed by the Jedi Council, or it could be a past mission which demonstrated the student's ability to act alone. Only when all the trials were completed, would the Jedi Council consider a student for promotion.
