My little sister is always stressing out a test. She studies for hours on end trying to memorize the information off of her study guide that is three pages long. If teachers gave open-book tests and made the students analyze the information, the students would have one less thing to worry about. They would still study; they just wouldn’t have to memorize everything. Most high school students stay up to all hours of the night studying. Open-book tests would help solve the problem of kids taking naps in the middle of class because they wouldn’t have been up all night studying give them a chance to sleep.
