    Abstract

    Australia is currently moving towards a national regulatory system for standards of teaching and learning in higher education. As professional historians we should all be concerned about the standards applied to the teaching of our discipline in Australian universities. This paper focuses on the issue of assessment and the role it plays in learning. Various assessment methods are evaluated and suggestions made on which are most appropriate for the teaching of History in Australian universities. The paper concludes with some recommendations on how assessment practices could be improved.
