How does BJJ coach decide who you roll with?

Hi I am curious to why and how BJJ coaches select who you roll with. I know there is a reason for everything. Just curious how the coach comes up with his decision.

We usually just went round robin so everyone rolled with everyone eventually, but a lot of times they base it on size or comparative skill level. Most places avoid cross-gender rolling as well.

I've never been to a non beginner class where this happened. But in my experience if your coach wants to see you roll with a higher belt they are checking how ready you are for a promotion, rolling with a lower belt you're a measuring stick.
