The Politics of Test Anxiety.
Carr, Rey A.
Current research and treatment methods view test anxiety as the student's problem. The author challenges the prevailing view and describes test anxiety not only as the student's psychological problem, but also as one result of the university's struggle to maintain power over the students. Consulting with faculty, acting as student advocates, and publicly affirming research findings are discussed as preventive or developmental counseling strategies, and are viewed as means of liberating student growth and learning.
