Stress and Test-Taking
Training and self-assessment techniques for interpreters to better handle stress during interpreter certification exam. Attendees will learn about the physiological effects of stress and how to manage its effects on their test-taking performance. We discuss self-calming techniques and proactive strategies designed to minimize anticipatory stress.
In addition, we share interpreting skill drills that challenge different parts of the brain simultaneously, and thereby simulate added stress, so that interpreters can develop additional mechanical skills they need to handle their stress while interpreting. If practiced diligently prior to test-taking, these drills do indeed make the test-taking experience easier, while enhancing the test-taker’s performance.
