Hi, my name's Sarah. I come from England and my question is do you think students are tested too much?
I would have to say no, definitely not for university students or high school students. I think it's necessary to have a lot of tests. It's good to be able to see your progress, which areas you need to improve on. Also, good for your teacher to be able to see which students are maybe trying a little harder than others. I think it's only fair and necessary to have a lot of tests. However, I do think that younger students are tested too much. I think they should be able to just enjoy their childhood, they don't care about their education at that age. So, no for older students, but yes, younger students are definitely tested way too much. They should just be able to enjoy their childhood and not worry about any tests or have any pressure like that.
