The purpose of this study is to see how alternative testing can alter students’ test anxiety levels. A survey will be given to the students before a written assessment, measuring the students’ text anxiety level before a standard test. Then the students will be given multiple options for an assessment of their understanding of the content, rather than a written test. A second survey will be given to the students to measure the students’ anxiety levels before turning in their alternate assessment. The two surveys will be compared to see if providing alternate ways to measure understanding rather than a traditional paper/pencil test will lower students’ anxiety levels about assessments.
