“Beyond the Bubble unlocks the vast digital archive of the Library of Congress to create a new generation of history assessments. Developed by the Stanford History Education Group (http://sheg.stanford.edu), Beyond the Bubble is the cornerstone of SHEG’s membership in the Library of Congress’s Teaching with Primary Sources Educational Consortium. We ‘go beyond the bubble’ by offering easy-to-use assessments that capture students’ knowledge in action – rather than their recall of discrete facts.”
Assessments for middle and high school are of various lengths, some just a few minutes in length, but all can be completed within an hour. They cover evaluation of evidence, historical knowledge, and historical argumentation. Each assessment is keyed to one or more of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
