A recent History UK event provided an opportunity to reassess the purpose and future of history assessments. It acknowledged the fundamental role that assessment plays in undergraduate and postgraduate degrees from transitions to employability to skills development to creativity and inclusivity. Cross-institutional conversations about assessment were invaluable. You can see the programme for the day here.
Next steps: we are continuing to collect and collate resources relating to history assessment that might be useful for colleagues in the sector when designing new forms of assessment or coordinating programme level assessment. If you would like to contribute a case study about a particular type of assessment, approaches to designing and integrating assessment types into degree programmes, structuring the assessment journey in UG programmes, or another aspect of history assessment in history then please email Dr Sarah Holland (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a short outline and for further information of what is required. Also get in touch if you have any questions about the project.
