COD - 10/25/2012 - Beyond the Bubble [History]

Drawing on digital sources from the largest library in the world, the Library of CongressBeyond the Bubble expands history teachers' assessment options.

Beyond the Bubble's digital assessments take only a few minutes and are easy to score, come with rubrics and samples of student work, promote academic literacy, and provide a view into the thinking of students.

The assessments align with the Common Core standards. Each one is keyed to one or more standard and includes a link identifying the relevant standards.

Beyond the Bubble calls these exercises “History Assessments of Thinking". Each asks students to extend beyond simple factual recall to apply information in a specific historical context.

Beyond the Bubble assessments focus on the following aspects of historical understanding: evaluation of evidence, historical knowledge, and historical argumentation.

Beyond the Bubble was developed by the Stanford History Education Group. SHEG draws on over twenty years of research-based experience working at the elementary, middle, and high school levels.
