Test Anxiety Workshop

Welcome!

Test Anxiety occurs when our feelings of anxiety interfere with our ability to recall previously learned information during a testing situation. In other words, you "forget" or "blank out" what you've previously learned and thus do poorly on a test.

The first step in this workshop is to answer some questions.
