Are Midterms Bad for Faculty?

Previous studies found that student health is adversely affected by 
examination stress. We compared faculty and student stress and health 
during midterm examination week. Although faculty and students reported 
similarly high levels of stress, fatigue, anger, vigor, and negative 
moods, faculty reported fewer physical health symptoms and less tension, 
depression, and confusion. These results may be due to differences in 
coping strategies. Faculty need to be aware that they are not immune to 
health-related issues at midterm examination time.
