Salend, Spencer J.
TEACHING Exceptional Children, v44 n2 p58-68 Nov-Dec 2011
Research suggests that between 25% to 40% of students experience test anxiety, with students with disabilities and those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds having higher prevalence rates. Since test anxiety impacts student well-being and the validity of the important educational decisions based on testing data, this article offers strategies and guidelines that educators can use to address test anxiety and minimize its negative effects.
