Continuous Assessment of Historical Knowledge and Competence: Challenges, Pitfalls, and Possibilities
Halmstad University, School of Education, Humanities and Social Science, Contexts and Cultural Boundaries (KK).
2015 (English)In: Enriching History Teaching and Learning: Challenges, Possibilities, Practice: Proceedings of the Linköping Conference on History Teaching and Learning in Higher Education / [ed] David Ludvigsson & Alan Booth, Linköping: ISAK, Linköping University , 2015, 33-49 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

High-stake, end-of-course assignment tasks are not only experienced as stressful by students. It can also be questioned whether a single assignment task, however complex and many-sided, can address all relevant learning outcomes for a course and catch the multi-faceted character of historical knowledge.This paper discusses continuous assessment as an alternative to traditional end-of-course assessment. Previous studies as well as experiences from using continuous assessment in History courses at Halmstad University has been used in order to illustrate opportunities and drawbacks. A tentative conclusion is that continuous assessment does provide for more varied assignment tasks, thus giving teachers a broader view of students' achievements. Using continuous assessment, the assignment tasks can also more easily be experienced as part of the learning process and not only a checkpoint. Continuous assessment can therefore help students to develop a meta-understanding of their own learning.
