    Red face Test you for/on what you have learnt

    Hi all. My question is that should I say "test you for what you have learnt" or "test you on what you have learnt"?
    Be free to pick out any grammar mistake I make in my question, too. Many thanks.

    Use "test you on what you have learnt".
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer
