School testing is the cause of over the top stress on most students. Children in the education system are taking tests back to back and relying on them for their future. In this system, if they happen to fail an exam it could result in a rejection letter from their dream school or an extra year of relearning the subject. Due to this pressure, students spend hours upon hours studying. This effects their sleeping habits, social life, and performance when they take the test. Furthermore, some students have exam anxiety. They could know all the material perfectly, however taking the exam itself causes them to blank out because they are so nervous. Projects allow students to research as much information on their topic as possible, which is essentially what studying is. If they submit or present projects rather than take tests and exams, it will be more efficient to the education system as a whole. Projects will eliminate testing anxiety, as well as studying excessively since researching information on their topic will allow the student to understand the information.
