_Please_, when showing the output, show it as it is, without
editing. There is no way this is what really appeared on
your screen. (The second line shouldn't have the <root...>
bit at the beginning.) Your transcript obscures the problem,
rather than illustrating it.

You need to do
$ . ./changetest.sh
The . command runs the script in the current shell, without
forking a new process to run it.
