This paper presents Test Anxiety Detection System using a Microcontroller, Temperature and Pulse Rate Sensors. The data are stored and analyzed in a computer via MATLAB program. Westside Test Anxiety Scale was used to verify the level of anxiety of the 21 respondents. The results showed that 62% of the respondents have average anxiety, 43% of the respondents have a faster pulse rate and 52% has lower skin temperature than the normal. The system can therefore be used in determining Test Anxiety and other types of Anxiety.
