How Can Students Use Self-Compassion to Reduce Test Anxiety?

Reduce Anxiety and Get Better Test Results
To perform better on tests, maybe your students need to think less and love more.
Sometimes students get in their own way. They panic before exams and fill their heads with worries about failure. They create excess anxiety that clouds their thinking and prevents them from performing optimally. Then their exam results don’t adequately reflect what they have learned. This reinforces their fears and makes it worse the next time around.
It can be a vicious cycle that is bad for your students and bad for you. But you can break the cycle by teaching students how to think differently about testing and about themselves.
The key to this approach is also teaching students to treat themselves as they would a friend. To be kinder instead of critical. To judge less and love more.
You can learn how to do that in How Can Students Use Self-Compassion to Reduce Test Anxiety? This Magna 20-Minute Mentor with Kristin L. Roush, Ph.D., presents the mindful self-compassion technique and shows how it can help students change how they feel and how they think about testing so they are better able to demonstrate their learning on exams.
Roush is an engaging presenter with decades of experience in the classroom. She is committed to sharing actionable advice that you can implement and use to reduce test anxiety right away.
She will deliver several specific and adaptable techniques that you can use to help your students manage their own exam stress and anxiety.
