The current exploratory study examined nine individual case studies to better understand the process of test anxiety and test anxiety treatment through students with and without learning difficulties. Select students participated in a nine-week test anxiety reduction treatment program that used progressive muscle relaxation and systematic desensitization to help them improve their levels of anxiety while studying, their efficiency while studying, their overall degree of academic competency, and their grade point averages.
