Keys to managing test anxiety Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Keys to ManagingTest Anxiety
  • 2. Proper Test Preparation
  • 3. Better Earlier Than Later.Preferably learn the material days or weeks before the test. Then review it a time or two prior to the night before the test. Time management is critical.
  • 4. The Night Before the Test Do not try to learn a lot of new information the night before the test. It can disturb your memory of the parts you have already learned. On the night before the test, conduct an organized final review of the material you have learned using lots of multi-sensory self- testing. Prove to yourself that you know the material! Get your normal amount of sleep the night before.
  • 5. Proper Physical Preparation
  • 6.  Maintain your normal caffeine intake. Eat a light meal or healthy snack during the last two hours before the test. If possible, eat some fruit or drink some fruit juice during the hour before the test. Arrive in the test room about 5 minutes early with plenty of test taking supplies. Try to sit where there are the fewest distractions. Never sit where you can easily read another student’s work.
  • 7. Monitoring and ManagingStress During the Test
  • 8.  Work the easiest sections of the test first. Pay attention to your body, especially your heart rate, respiration rate, and muscular tension. When you notice warning signs of stress, act at once to reduce your stress level. Remember this sentence: Psychological stress and muscular tension MUST CO- EXIST. Lowering one automatically lowers the other. Use simple relaxation exercises to lower your stress.
