General Information

This achievement standard comprises of a four-step project to write a magazine article about a contested event. Part 1 researching the event, Part 2 is looking at different perspectives on the event, Part 3 is looking at who holds each perspective (and why), and Part 4 is turning this research into a magazine article. 

Unlike a ‘traditional’ exam, you won’t be sitting a test at the end of your learning. Instead, you will be able to work on the article over a period of time. It’s the digital equivalent of an internal that you might do at school over 2-4 weeks; some is done in class and some is done at home. In the end, you submit the work you've created.

This assessment is based on on the NZQA 91437 achievement standard (version 2) document.


Before taking History 3.4, LearnCoach recommends you should have passed some Level 2 history or classical studies internals or externals. If you have not done this, some of the concepts in the internal may be unfamiliar to you and you may find it a challenge. 

If you've sat a similar standard in the past that has now expired, you cannot get the same credits a second time. Check the 'Exclusions List' to see recently updated standards.
