Background and purpose: Present study aimed to investigate the efficacy of problem-solving skill training on the reduction of test anxiety in female students.

Method: Current research was an experimental study with pretest-posttest control group design. The sample consisted of 40 female students in Babol’s elementary schools that were selected using random cluster sampling method and were randomly assigned to experimental (N= 20) and control (N= 20) groups. Participants completed the Inventory of Test Anxiety (Abolghasemi, 1999). The experimental group received an eight-week training program (that consisted of one-hour sessions) on problem-solving skills, while the control group received no training program.

Results: The results of one-way ANCOVA showed that problem-solving skill training can significantly reduce students’ test anxiety (p < .001).

Conclusion: Problem-solving skill training is an immediate, efficient, and harmless strategy that can empower students to deal with test anxiety through enhancing their cognitive ability.

Keywords: Problem-solving skill training, test anxiety, students
