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.
