Overcoming Test Anxiety: Giving Students the Ability to Show What They Know.
This chapter outlines the concept of test anxiety and its impact on performance, manners in which to diagnose and provide accommodations for the disability, and many means by which to reduce the impact of test anxiety. Overall, it bears repeating that although the concept of test anxiety is relatively simple, understanding how it affects a given individual is complex and dependent on many factors. Despite its complexity, test anxiety is an important consideration as long as performance evaluations are valued as determinants for access to education, resources, and other opportunities.
