Review of History unit standards

Proposed expiry of History unit standard 5840

Recent developments

Consultation on the proposed expiry of standard 5840 has closed. Once the quality assurance process is completed this page will be updated with the outcome of the review.


In early 2019, NZQA reviewed unit standard 5840 in the History domain as part of a regular maintenance cycle. 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 and the review found little evidence to support retaining the standard.
