Beyond the Bubble: A New Generation of History Assessments

Web Link to Resource:

Organization: 
Stanford History Education Group

Beyond the Bubble features new kinds of history assessments that allow teachers to gauge whether students have mastered key historical thinking skills. These innovative assessments, called History Assessments of Thinking (HATs), prompt students to answer questions about historical sources and to justify their reasoning in two or three sentences.
Most HATs can be completed in ten minutes, some in less than five. HATs allow teachers to get a quick sense of what students do and don’t know. Teachers can use this information to adjust instruction to meet the needs of their students.
