Creating an environment that encourages creativity in children is essential in helping them engage in their learning. When assessing them, it is imperative that children are in an environment that promotes a sense of security with little or no distractions. A positive and serene environment can help lower test anxiety in children who experience it in higher levels before being assessed.
