In my opinion, students should be given more text because it helps expand minds and improves mental growth.

Student's test should stay where they are. At least in my school, responsible students study about 2 hours per day, 4 days a week. That makes 8 hours of studying. But on an average, kids spend about 17 hours per week studying. This might cause a good impact academically, but it causes a lot of stress, more importantly, it takes away their time to do other things such as sports, hanging out with friends, etc. Common responses to "exam stress," include disturbed sleep patterns, tiredness, worry, irregular eating habits, increased infections, and inability to concentrate. Plus, it could really take your social life down a notch. Students study because they are afraid that people will judge them if they get a bad grade.

You have no proof of how tests help expand minds and improve mental growth; no because of no websites to back up your answer. Therefore, I don't believe you.

5-7 tests a semester or 5-7 a subject? Also, how is your curriculum for education? We may live in different parts of the world so a debate partner would need to live in your country at least.

I mean that the schools in most districts don't push their students enough so there should be, in my opinion, about 5-7 tests per semester.

What do you mean by "more tests." It would also depend on the subject as well considering English will never have tests, just essays and collaborative projects while Math may differ on tests based on units. So what would you consider an average for "more tests?"
