Bloom’s Taxonomy is used to classify the forms and levels of learning. It identifies three domains of learning: Cognitive, Affective and Psychomotor domains, of which the most widely used is the cognitive domain. Some examples for each level of cognitive domain are listed below.
Knowledge: This level delivers knowledge that needs to be recalled or recognized. For example:
- The earth is the third planet in our solar system.
- A pen is used for writing.
- Recall the six levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy.
Comprehension: This level is used to deliver knowledge that needs to be imbibed in order to interpret or make a decision. Some examples are:
- The sun rises in the east because the earth revolves around the sun in a counter-clockwise direction.
- Identify the prerequisites for the course, given the learning path and the objectives.
Application: This level is used to teach application skills in various circumstances. For example:
- Write an example of a Level-4 objective, based on Bloom’s Taxonomy.
- Connect a RAM chip at the appropriate position in the computer.
- Install software.
Analysis: This level is used to teach the analysis of a situation in order to arrive at a decision, comparison or differentiation.
- Analyze the performance report for the first month using the Hitachi TMEA tool.
- Determine the appropriate Bloom’s level at which specific content should be taught to a specific learner with a given aim.
- Troubleshoot an error that caused problems in a software installation process.
Synthesis: This level teaches the learner how to create new entries from known information or objects or facts.
- Design a research proposal.
- Compose a poem/tune.
Evaluation: This level is used to teach learners how to make judgements.
- Provide arguments in support of a proposal – a debate.
- Decide the value of a job using the internal criterion.
Therefore, Blooms Taxonomy helps in designing effective learning strategies.
