At Home: How do I assess a Bronze project?

CREST Bronze requires children to demonstrate skills including problem-solving, independent learning, organisation, teamwork, and communication. To achieve a Bronze Award, your child should record the work done on their project in a CREST Bronze workbook.

Before you begin the assessment, you will need to upload a sample of your child's work for moderation. Learn more here.

Assessing the project

To assess a Bronze project you simply need to look at the work completed by the child, and check which of the Bronze CREST criteria they have met. If they have filled in the CREST Bronze Workbook used one of our CREST Bronze project ideas, then it is likely that they have met the criteria. You can use the Bronze Parent Guide to help you.

Assessing Bronze projects in your CREST account

Login to your CREST Account, create your project (or open the existing project you're assessing) and go to the project page to start the assessment. There you will see the fifteen CREST assessment criteria. Tick the boxes for criteria that have been met. 11 out of 15 are needed to achieve a Bronze Award.

View our Bronze criteria guidance to see what's expected of projects at Bronze level.

You should review your child's project work and decide if it met the assessment criteria and have achieved their CREST Bronze Awards.
