Since a student can literally be neither "over" or "on" a test, both are legitimate prepositions in this instance. That is, it's no more valid to say "test students on" than it is to say "test students over." Literally, material can be "on" a test, while a test can be "over" material.  Thus, "Test students over" is merely a manner of speaking which may be regional, since I hear it commonly here in the South.

Thanks for watching the video and for your comment, though.

Test them "over" something? You mean test them "on" something, surely?
