STRATEGIES TO EASE TEST ANXIETY
As a parent, how often have you been surprised when you thought your child would do well on a test at school only to discover afterward he/she did not receive a passing grade?
At Above Grade Level we often hear from parents their children suffer from test anxiety and they ask us to help their children with strategies to overcome it. Test anxiety is very common and can affect any student and leave parents perplexed and searching for answers. We’ve experienced firsthand the effects of test anxiety and used these strategies to help them:
- Provide the best study environment possible. This will include a clean, organized study area. Remove distractions like TV, iPods, and phones.
- Understand the learning methods which work best for your child. Would incorporating auditory, visual or Kinesthetic (hands-on) strategies increase their chances to retain the material required for the test?
