Evidence List
(Cont):
• Supporting idea 1: The strategy (Easing Assignment
requirements, Extending deadlines, and working
with students) is aimed at reducing the effects of
stress and anxiety on students. Evidence: Reducing
assignment anxiety is important as they are often
sources of stress and anxiety. Thus, reducing or
cutting back on high stakes test, as they have been
known to cause in students across a diverse
number of settings. Lastly, buildin alternate
methods of assessment to reduce the amount of
stress caused by high stakes test, or modify the
format of exams to lower stress. Working with
students and establishingconnectionswith them
helps in making studentsfeel more comfortable in
class and more willing to engage with the educator
both inside and outside class and increases the
educator's perceived immediacy and connection
with students. - Jeremy L. Hsu & Gregory R
Goldsmith (February 2021)
Stress impacts an individual's personal growth
• Anxiety and stress could negativelyimpact our executive functions (such as our abilityto focus,
switch between different tasks, using stored information in memory to complete a task). Increasing
anxiety and stress would often lead studentsto fearing that they would fail, avoidinganythingthat
would cause any kind of harm and shorten their attentionspan in class and whilst doing any sort of
dailywork.
• -Oliver J. (2013)
Intense Workload and short
deadlines increase stress and
anxiety dramatically
• The education system plays a big role in increasing
stress levels for students, some of the reasons
include crowded lecture halls, fear of receiving low
grades, inadequate resources and facilities,
extensive syllabus, long study hours and lengthy
workdays, and huge academic expectations.
• -K. JayasankaraReddy, KarishnmaRajan Menon
