I think.. all people learn, because they give you the opportunity to evaluate how much you know and how far you've gone with whatever it is that you're learning, and they give you a chance to also see how close you are with your peers in the class.

I think tests help people learn, because they hold you accountable for information. Otherwise, even with myself, if I know I'm not being tested on it, I might write it down, but I'm not going to absolutely spend the time to sit and learn it, so they hold you accountalbe. That's why people are--

Yeah, definitely, I think tests help you to learn, because they can review the things and then organize the knowledge in a systematic way, too, when they prepare for tests, and they can adopt many learning technologies when they prepare for tests.

I think tests are good in a sense that students are able to kind of organize their study. I think overreliance on tests is a bad thing, whereby the test result dominates the student concerns. The focus should be, I think, more about learning rather than test-taking.

I do not think that tests help people learn. I actually believe it's quite the opposite: tests would stress some people and it tends to make the students memorize rather than learn. So, I really don't believe that tests help students learn.

I think some tests are good because they motivate people to learn. But I think a lot of people have the tendency to study for a test very hard, to do well on a test and not really appreciate what they're learning, because they're only concerned about just getting a good grade on the test.
