Unit 1 - Assessment Activity 1 - Revision Guide

There will be three sections to the test

Section A - Factual recall
(Criterion A)

20 questions based on the facts you have encountered in this unit. Most of the answers will be one word, most questions will have appeared in the quizzes I have built to help you. Some questions will be based on our visit to Chillon castle. This ought to be easy if you have learnt your facts and listened on the trip.

Section B - Analysis of documents
(Criterion D)

You will be given a source of historical information. You will be asked to evaluate the utility of the source in so far as it helps you answer a particular historical question. (OPVL) I will only include the types of sources we have encountered so far. e.g. archeological records, contemporary images (eg paintings), architecture, medieval court records, documentary films, historians...

Section C - Structured response
(Criterion A and C)

This section is divided into three questions.

(a) will ask you to briefly describe something from your own knowledge.
(b) will ask you to explain something.
(c) will ask you to evaluate a debatable question.

These are the sort of questions you need to be able to answer.
