This paper discusses the problems of assessing Citizenship, a subject which is perceived by many teachers as unconventional, and by some, as unassessable. The value of assessing Citizenship will be considered in the context of the findings from an empirical study conducted in secondary schools across England. The challenge for Citizenship educators is the need for meaningful assessments that relate to the beliefs and values under discussion in lessons.
