Examination-Related Anxiety in Students Diagnosed with AD/HD and the Case for an Allocation of Extra Time: Perspectives of Teachers, Mothers and Students
Taylor, Myra; Houghton, Stephen
Emotional & Behavioural Difficulties, v13 n2 p111-125 Jun 2008
This study details the perspectives of Western Australian teachers, students and mothers on the case for an allocation of extra exam time to students diagnosed with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD). Eighteen teachers of students with AD/HD (14 high and four primary), 15 students with AD/HD (10 high and 5 primary), and their mothers participated in a series of semi-structured interviews (n = 48). Data analysis revealed that while 56% of teachers and 53% of parents support an allocation of extra exam time for students diagnosed with AD/HD, 67% of students are opposed. This paper details the reasons teachers, parents and students give for their support, ambivalence or opposition to the allocation of extra time for exams. (Contains 4 tables.)
