Why We Need More Tests

Why We Need More Tests

Garrett R., Managing Editor

What is the purpose of a test? To make sure students have grasped the information of a course. So, let me sit you down and peel your peepers open to this news: We need more tests! If there are more tests, then there will be less information on each individual test.

Why you may ask, does this help you? Well, the tests will be smaller. This means studying will now be a breeze. Also, with more tests you may actually learn more and receive less homework. And do we not all want less homework? Most teachers refrain from assigning homework right before tests.

Now for the obvious question. In what subjects should these overproliferation of tests occur in? I will tell you, but please, patience. I will tell you, but first, let me say one thing. With more tests we will learn even more because more tests obviously means learning more material, with more efficiency.

Now, it is time for me to answer your obvious question. I think all classes should pump us full with tests. If you are looking for a specific class, I would have to say math. Why math? Math class, as it provides us with the most testable information, clearly seems to be the most natural fit.
