Abstract

Assessment mysteries and fears
In my current Higher Education teaching context, we are gearing up for final exams and to say students are worried, stressed and anxious would be an understatement. While I began my teaching career working with YLs, teens and adults in a variety of different contexts and situations, the commonality between these settings and groups is always the same: students see testing/assessment as a negative, stressful and potentially damaging personal and professional experience which they have little control over.
