Researching for a History assessment piece can often be the most daunting part of the subject. However, it needn't be. Research is a systematic process that, if followed step-by-step, will become a logical and efficient part of your work. There are nine stages of good research.
All sources, both primary and secondary, are made by people and may be biased (one-sided) and incomplete. Two people can see exactly the same incident and yet remember it differently. So too, modern historians can study the same evidence and reach different conclusions.
As you study History, you will be asked to complete a range of assessment types. Understanding what each kind of assessment task requires will help you to prepare more effectively for it.
