I have no problem with the idea that life is a test - but I define "life" as "eternal life" or "existence", and I define "test" as "learning process" or "growth experience".
In that sense, I'm okay with
seeing the events in our lives as tests - but I do so more in terms of
"evaluation-providing (for correction and growth)" rather than
"grade-producing (for final status)".
As an educator, I don't
like the traditional model of instruct, test, assign grade, move on. I
prefer the newer model of evaluate, design instruction based on
evaluation, re-evaluate, modify instruction (if necessary), continue process until
mastery is reached.
That version is how I see eternal life, and I think
it continues until each person reaches their highest level of mastery
