The study was carried out with a group of ten 8th class volunteer students whose test anxiety scores were high. The test anxiety which is one of the study's variables was tested with Test Anxiety Inventory (TAI) that is adapted to Turkish by ├ľner (1990). Besides, Personal Indecisiveness Scale (PIS) that was developed by Bacanl? (2000) was applied. The Psyco-education Program to the group was applied in 7 sessions. The study is semi-experimental and depended on pre-test, last-test model. Wilcoxon's signed rank test was used to analyze data and . 05 significancy level was used as criteria in interpreting results. As a result, it was observed that psycho-education program to 8th class students is effective on reducing: the test anxiety scores of students; personal indecisiveness; (implicitly) social anxiety and increasing self-reliance.
