This paper examines the current literature regarding test anxiety, math anxiety, and general anxiety. Numerous factors that cause anxiety and strategies to mitigate the effects of anxiety are identified. While a comprehensive school-wide or district-wide strategy is recommended, teachers are still able to effectively address anxiety within the classroom. An assessment strategy is then created and presented utilizing the cited literature that can be implemented by teachers of various ages and content areas.
