and Its

Abstract
Many
studies
have
stated
that
mathematics
test
anxiety
negatively
affects
student
performance
.
However
, there are
limited
resources
that
provide
support
for
implementing
strategies
in the
classroom
that will
help
decrease
mathematics
test
anxiety
while
increasing
student
performance
. In an
attempt
to
offer
more
research
in this
area
, this
study
determined
whether
mathematics
test
anxiety
coping
strategies
improved
student
performance
on
tests
,
increased
confidence
in
math
, and
allowed
students
to
become
successful
in
mathematics
.
Data
was
used
to
determine
whether
the
level
of
mathematics
test
anxiety
decreased
over
the
course
of the
study
while
student
performance
increased
.
Student
survey
questions
were
analyzed
to
gain
a
deeper
understanding
of the
origin
of
mathematics
test
anxiety
, what
triggers
mathematics
test
anxiety
, how
students
felt
during
tests
, and how
students
cope
with their
mathematics
test
anxiety
. The
Mathematics
Anxiety
Rating
Scale
,
Elementary
Form
(MARSE)
was
used
to
obtain
the
mathematics
test
anxiety
scores
from
each
of the
students
. A
linear
regression
test
was
used
to
determine
that the
higher
the
level
of the
students
'
mathematics
test
anxiety
the
lower
their
performance
.
TTests
were
used
to
determine
that
through
the
implementation
of
mathematics
test
anxiety
coping
strategies
,
mathematics
test
anxiety
decreased
.
Although
the
TTest
provided
strong
evidence
that
mathematics
test
anxiety
is
decreased
among
students
,
it
provided
weak
evidence
that
student
performance
will
increase
. The
student
surveys
determined
that
students
with
low
levels
of
mathematics
test
anxiety
tend
to
remain
very
positive
about
their
performance
.
Students
with a
moderate
level
of
mathematics
test
anxiety
remained
mostly
positive
about
their
performance
, and
put
the
most
pressure
on
themselves
to
do
well
. With the
students
who
had
high
levels
of
mathematics
test
anxiety
, their
attitude
and
thoughts
about
their
performance
was
much
lower
than that of their
peers
.
When
their
anxiety
flared
up
during
tests
, the
students
did
not
know
of any
strategies
they
could
use
to
help
calm
them
down
.
Because
of this, their
mathematics
test
anxiety
greatly
affected
their
performance
in
mathematics
.
