From the Union and Sun Journal:

ALBANY (AP) — A survey of school psychologists in New York suggests the statewide English and math tests given each spring make students more anxious than other tests.
The New York State School Boards Association released the findings Friday in a joint report with the state Association of School Psychologists.
The report says that fewer than half of all students are physically affected by testing. But about 60 percent of the psychologists surveyed believe anxiety has increased since the state tests were aligned with the Common Core learning standards.
Teacher and parent expectations were identified as the biggest source of the anxiety.
