Week 8: Test Preparation & Dealing with Test Anxiety

In the last class we talked about different types of tests, how to prepare and manage how to test well during the exam. Here are the tips and resources that were shared in class on Wednesday (10/17):

How do I know if I have test anxiety?

Answer these 5 questions YES or NO

  1. Do you know the material well enough when you take a test?
  2. Do you get so anxious during tests that your concentration suffers?
  3. Do you go blank and find yourself unable to recall material you know?
  4. Do you work so fast that you make silly mistakes or misread questions?
  5. Does anxiety often interfere with your performance so much that your grade does not reflect how well you really know the material?

If you answered “Yes” to number one AND “Yes” to any of the others, you may have test anxiety.
