A Video to Help Students Put High-Stakes Testing Into Perspective

  
  
  

Test anxiety needs no formal introduction. Most of us have experienced it—and if you haven’t, you’ve at least seen the crippling affect it can have on students’ self-esteem and performance.

This Test Does Not Define You is one video we always show students in the weeks preceding big exams. Not only does it do a nice job of dispelling a few myths about testing, it also sends them an important message: They are not defined by test results! The video also highlights some simple research-based activities that reduce test-anxiety.
