Review of History unit standards

Proposed expiry of History unit standard 5840

NZQA has reviewed unit standard 5840 in the History domain as part of a regular maintenance cycle and found little evidence to support retaining it.

 5840  3 6 Analyse the Treaty of Waitangi and Māori-Pākehā relations in nineteenth century New Zealand

In 2012, when all other History unit standards were replaced with achievement standards, the standard was retained due to high usage in the tertiary sector. Usage of the standard has dropped significantly since then, so it is recommended that it be expired without replacement.
