Bloom's Taxonomy For Cognitive Learning and Teaching
By Terri Langan
The users of this learning object read a brief introduction to the six levels of Bloom's Cognitive Taxonomy and quiz themselves on a basic understanding of the levels.
The learner reads about the kinds of questions that are most effective to use on student questionnaires evaluating instruction. Generic evaluations are less helpful than evaluations focused on the specific types of instruction and learning expected in a content area. Sample questions are provided.

A wonderful animated view of a document I have long used. The stairstep model, developed by Susan Kennedy at Penn State has always been a visual favorite of faculty who really begin to see the connection between the lower end (knowledge) and the higher end (evaluation). Faculty who teach the Knowledge now can see that they have to build in assignments to LEAD the students up the steps; not merely jumping directly to evaluation (through exams and quizzes).Posted by Joan McMahon on 1/22/2008 12:00:00 AM Reply
