Even our most capable students can become paralyzed by anxiety when confronted with page after page of multiple choice questions. If our students’ scores are to accurately reflect their abilities, they need tools to help them overcome their fears. Participants in this program will learn multiple test-preparation and test-taking strategies designed to build students’ confidence and self-efficacy while addressing content in an ethical and educative manner.
