Have you ever…
- worried so much over an exam that you’ve lost sleep or skipped meals?
- spent many hours studying for a test and during the exam your mind goes blank?
- felt extremely nervous, had sweaty palms or shortness of breath during a test?
- worried about the grade or the questions from a test after you’ve taken it?
If so, you may be suffering from test anxiety. Below you find a link to a self-assessment that you can use to determine if you suffer from elevated levels of test anxiety.
For the self-assessment, please indicate how well each of the presented statements describes you using the following scale (1 = not at all like me, 4 = very much like me). After completing the assessment, sum your responses to create an overall “test anxiety score” (higher scores indicate higher levels of test anxiety).
