A Cleary, Teacher & Peer Reviewer

Exposes students to the types of questions they could meet in an exam – including source-based questions – from Bayeux Tapestry close-ups for Paper 2 to Nazi propaganda photographs for Paper 3.

The tests provide a good focus for revision as well as a framework for learning the key content

What do teachers say about this resource? (6188)

This is an excellent resource. Incredibly detailed questioning of the entire topic. The strength of this resource lies in the impressive range of questions provided. There are simple question/answer as well as gap fills, matching up key words and definitions as well as source based questions. This resource best tests the higher level of knowledge needed to achieve the best answers in the exam. The answers provided are incredibly helpful and time saving for the teacher... Very comprehensively covered the specification. Particularly like how each of the quizzes is directly linked to a line of the specification. The number of questions in the quiz clearly demonstrates how the depth of the specification is also covered. Both sections on conflict at home (civil rights) and conflict abroad (Vietnam War) are covered equally well... Excellent resource, very detailed and a huge time saver for teachers.

This is a thorough set of topic tests which focus on assessing some of the key details for each of the sections of the spec which have the potential to save teachers a lot of work putting similar tests together. If students were regularly getting high marks in these tests it would indicate a good depth of knowledge and put them in a strong position to succeed in answering the exam questions. The tests therefore provide a good focus for revision as well as a framework for learning the key content.

What do teachers say about this resource? (6122)

This is an excellent resource for teachers of this course. This fits in very well with the specification and shows a good breadth of what is required.... There is a clear focus on what is expected in each question and the information included is exactly what the students need in order to succeed. In particular, the resource is written in a very pupil-friendly manner which makes it instantaneously ready for use by students. The variety of different tasks ranging in difficulties does make this accessible to all abilities in the class enhancing its educational value further and the focus on the sources and on own knowledge is important for this topic – the author has done very well.

D Taborda, teacher & Peer Reviewer

I like the detail given in the answer sheets which allow students to self or peer assess the work to a high standard and level of certainty. This would give the students confidence going forward and make them fully aware of the level of work expected from them... I would purchase this test pack as it would benefit the students but it could also serve as data points for students, staff, management and even parents.

A Stevenson, Teacher & Peer Reviewer

It gives the learner an opportunity to reflect on key aspects of each sub-topic and identify areas of weakness that can be revised prior to an exam. The resource matches the new specification well and the division of topics fits the delivery of the unit.

What do teachers say about this resource? (7116)

A useful resource particularly for revision/homeworks. I particularly liked that one could also use much of it for IGCSE or AQA 9-1, or even Lenin to Yeltsin as a basic factual test. Also there was a good variety of questions eg fill in tables, p7.
It enhances learning of the content by going over it in an orderly manner.The educational value is to allow students and teachers to measure progression,or where they have problems.
It matches and interprets [the spec] well.
