Test Anxiety Coping Skills

Translation missing: en.products.product.view_full_details

Test anxiety coping skills are ways to handle stress and worry when taking tests. Kids and teens often use techniques like deep breathing, positive thinking, and breaking tasks into smaller steps to feel better. They also manage their time well, eat healthy, and talk to teachers or counselors for support.

The Test Anxiety Coping Skills handout is a helpful resource that offers kids and teens insight into recognizing and managing test anxiety effectively. With three sections, it starts by highlighting the common signs of test anxiety, then provides tips to ease it, and ends with calming techniques.

Using this handout allows kids or teens to instill these skills early on and become prepared to handle test anxiety throughout their academic journey. Pairing it with the Test Anxiety Activity worksheet enhances their understanding of personal triggers and reactions, which promotes self-awareness for sustained academic success.

After finishing the handout, parents and teachers can suggest a "mindful reset" activity for kids or teens. This means taking a quick break, closing their eyes, and breathing deeply while picturing a peaceful spot. For instance, they might imagine a quiet beach or a calm forest, which helps them feel refreshed and ready to focus on schoolwork again.
