To Reduce Test Anxiety

Parents and families can do several things to create a positive test-taking experience and help students prepare for tests. “Test anxiety” is worrying too much about doing well on a test. It can keep students from doing their best. Some ways to help reduce anxiety are:


● Talk about the test in a positive way.

● Encourage best effort.

● Encourage your child to focus on his or her strengths, such as a good memory or strong analytical skills.

● Assure your child that the test is only one measure of academic performance.

● Assure your child that their teacher has provided them with excellent strategies to help them have a successful test experience. Remind your child to be confident and use these strategies.

● Make sure your child gets a good night's sleep and has a good breakfast.


Remember—you are very important to your child’s success in school and in life. Your interest and support let your child know you believe in them and that you value education. We hope these suggestions help you help your child have a positive testing experience.
