Test anxiety. We’ve all heard the phrase. But what exactly is test anxiety, and how common is it among students? Moreover, which students does test anxiety affect most often, and what factors contribute to test anxiety?
NYSSBA and the New York Association of School Psychologists have teamed up to create an in-depth report on test anxiety.
Cardboard cutouts of two cartoon characters, Rex and Roxy, are prominently displayed in the lobby of the Broome-Tioga BOCES’ food service department.
Rex is holding an apple while Roxy holds a carrot. Drawn by Mason Mastroianni, who also draws the B.C. comic strip, the characters are part of a marketing effort to promote the Rock on Café, an award winning school meal program operated by the BOCES as a shared service with 15 Broome and Tioga county school districts.
