This is a very interesting article, I wonder how many people will use this type of testing to their advantage? I agree with you that it might feel a little strange getting tested for stress. Doesn’t a person know whether he or she is stressed without having to get tested? However, this type of testing may be beneficial for us pre service teachers because we are often warned about how stressful the first few years of teaching are and how often teachers experience “teacher burnout”. Teacher burnout is defiantly something I want to try and avoid, I remember doing a lesson on it for ECS 300 in Ken’s class that explained different ways a teacher can conquer burnout. Here is a link to where I got some of my material.
Hope you enjoy!
