Assessment resource Year 7 history assessment - Investigating the ancient past: A history mystery

TLF ID M014416

This is an assessment package that uses the Year 7 Australian Curriculum history achievement standard to gather evidence about how well students have demonstrated what they know, what they understand and what they can do for the depth study 'Investigating the Ancient Past' (between 60 000BC–c.650 AD). Using the context of a historical investigation, students present a multimodal response considering various aspects of evidence, including: the method by which it is found, the different forms it can take, the type of information it can provide and how it can be useful to historians. The package comprises teacher guidelines, student booklet, assessment resources and task-specific standards (rubric, matrix, continua).
