Managing Test Anxiety

Introduction

Tests and quizzes are more widely used in schools than ever.  Teachers rely on written examinations to show whether students have learned the information presented in the course.  Colleges and universities evaluate applicants’ performance on entrance examinations such as the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) to judge whether these applicants are likely to be successful in their programs.    With so much depending on test results, it is no wonder that students often become anxious about taking tests.  But don’t worry!  You can help your students master test-anxiety and improve your students performance on exams by following simple plan and ideas. 

This issue of The Practical Teacher provides a simple plan and ideas that your students can use to reduce test anxiety and improve test performance.
