Many students find taking tests, completing assignments, and/or giving presentations very stressful. At times, this stress can be counterproductive and negatively impact performance. The American Test Anxieties Association estimates between 16 and 20% of college students have high anxiety when it comes to taking tests or performing well on assignments. Fortunately, there are ways to address anxiety so that you can do your best work. During the academic year, we offer drop-in Test Anxiety Workshops (See dates and times for current semester’s workshops below.) These workshops are free for students, but space is limited, so we request that you register in advance by calling the Counseling Center at 217-333-3704.
The video below explains what the workshops cover. In addition, for a summary of strategies that can help, the Counseling Center offers a Test Anxiety brochure.
