Anxiety, Online tests


Test anxiety may have a negative impact on a student's mental health, resulting in poor self-esteem, morale, and motivation. It has a negative correlation with academic performance, which can contribute to underestimation of individual performance. Students who experienced test anxiety often have trouble in concentration while taking a test, as well as depressive symptoms, somatic discomforts, and difficulty studying for tests. This study aimed to determine the occurrence of test anxiety while taking online tests of the Grade 12 students of De La Salle Medical Health Sciences Institute Special Health Sciences Senior High School. A total of 276 respondents from DLSMHSI SHS-SHS participated in this study. The study utilized a quantitative and qualitative type of research employing the descriptive method. In gathering of data, an adapted version of the instrument on test anxiety was disseminated. Additionally, a follow up interview was conducted in order to determine the factors of test anxiety and supported the results. Test anxiety was discovered to occur majority of the time while taking an online test among the Grade 12 students at De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Special Health Sciences Senior High School, with time pressure, anxiousness, and self-doubt as its factors.
