Test Anxiety Management

Test anxiety is worry or fear caused by having to take tests, and most students feel some level of anxiety in testing situations. However, for some students, test anxiety is so intense that it negatively affects their academic success.

“If you knew that you could handle anything that came your way, what would you have to fear…” — Susan Jeffers, Ph.D.

The objective of the P.A.S.S. Test Anxiety Management program is to help students gain confidence in their test preparation and test taking skills. Taking control of test anxiety and minimizing its negative effects is possible through Preparation Assessment, Strategies, and Stress Management.

Assessment
