One of our Facebook friends, Maria Teresa Crabb Esposito shared a great idea for alleviating assessment anxiety.
She encourages students to keep a picture of a person that they admire and love on their desk during testing. This can help students have more confidence during the test. Maria shared, “I remember having my Dad´s picture during an important essay exam, to get my professional certification (on my second try). I was sure his presence helped me to finally pass this exam!”
