This brief survey can help you identify some symptoms of test anxiety. Read through each statement and reflect upon past testing experiences. You may wish to consider all testing experiences or focus on a particular subject (history, science, math, etc.). Indicate how often each statement describes you by choosing a number from 1 to 5 as outlined below. Note that the number 5 means 'always' and number 1 means 'never'. Click submit when you are finished.

Please remeber, this is NOT a tool to diagnose anxiety issues. This is just a tool to give you an idea of your anxiety level. Contact a counselor if you feel you need help.
