Making reasoned judgements based on ‘valid criteria’ is a key part of assessment across the new A-levels.  However, for A-level students this is an extremely difficult idea to grasp and apply to essay-writing.  In this session David and Diana look at how we can improve students’ ability to select and apply valid criteria in order to improve their argumentative writing in A-level history.
