How do I assess a Bronze project?

How do I assess a Bronze project?

CREST Bronze requires students to demonstrate skills including problem-solving, independent learning, organisation, teamwork, and communication.

To achieve a Bronze Award, each student should record the work done on their project either in a CREST Bronze workbook or in a separate project report accompanied by a CREST Bronze Student Profile. 

You can download both the workbook and the Student Profile from your online project page.

Assessing the project and requesting certificates 

We recommend that the person doing the assessment isn’t the same person who supervised the students in their project work. 

You should review students' project work and decide which students have met the assessment criteria and have achieved their CREST Bronze Awards. 

Assessing Bronze projects in your CREST account

Before you begin the assessment, you will need to upload a sample of your students work for moderation. We ask for the work of 10% of your students. E.g. if you have 10 students or less, upload 1 student's work. If you have 20 students, upload 2 students' work, etc.


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