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.

We live in an era of high-stakes testing and while we do believe that we have a responsibility to equip students with strategies to help them succeed on these tests, we also believe it is equally important to put these exams into perspective.

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.
