About the Assessment
This assessment reveals students' ability to source a document. Historical documents do not provide perfect windows into the past. Rather, each source has relative strengths and weaknesses as evidence about the past. This HAT gauges whether students can see not only how a document provides evidence about the past but also its limitations.
