Hannah’s research explores the ways in which teacher’s communicate to students prior to their GCSE exams. Her research has conceptualised test-taking practices and skills which teachers transmit to students as ‘efficacy appeals’ and is looking at how students appraise these messages, and their impact upon student engagement and GCSE grade.
