Download as PDF
Anxiety has been shown to negatively effect learning, especially in evaluative, and more specifically, testing situations. It has been demonstrated that test anxiety is a complex phenomenon and that there are different views as to its causes and treatments. This issue has very serious implications since examinations are a large part of education, and occur more frequently over the school years. This paper aims to discuss the practical implications for teachers with a focus on how classroom factors can influence anxiety levels with students.
