DOMAINS OFLEARNINGDr. James Malce Alo, RN, MAN, MAPsycho, PHD.
• There is more than one type of learning. A committee of colleges, led by Benjamin Bloom (1956), identified three domains of educational activities: 1. Cognitive: mental skills (Knowledge) 2. Affective: growth in feelings or emotional areas (Attitude) 3. Psychomotor: manual or physical skills (Skills)Three Types 2 3/9/2013
• (Bloom, 1956) involves: • knowledge and the • development of intellectual skills. • This includes the: • recall or recognition of specific facts, • procedural patterns, and • concepts that serve in the development of intellectual abilities and skills.Cognitive Domain 3 3/9/2013

Follows instructions to build a model.Guided Response: The early stages in learning a Responds hand-signals of instructorcomplex skill that includes imitation and trial and error. while learning to operate a forklift.Adequacy of performance is achieved by practicing. Key Words: copies, traces, follows, react, reproduce, responds Examples: Use a personal computer. Repair a leaking faucet. Drive a car.Mechanism: This is the intermediate stage in learning acomplex skill. Learned responses have become habitual Key Words: assembles, calibrates,and the movements can be performed with some constructs, dismantles, displays,confidence and proficiency. fastens, fixes, grinds, heats, manipulates, measures, mends, mixes, organizes, sketches. Examples: Maneuvers a car into a tight parallel parking spot. Operates a computer quickly and accurately. Displays competence while playingComplex Overt Response: The skillful performance of the piano.motor acts that involve complex movementpatterns. Proficiency is indicated by a quick, accurate, and Key Words: assembles, builds,highly coordinated performance, requiring a minimum of calibrates, constructs, dismantles,energy. This category includes performing without displays, fastens, fixes, grinds, heats,hesitation, and automatic performance. For example, manipulates, measures, mends,players are often utter sounds of satisfaction or expletives mixes, organizes, sketches.as soon as they hit a tennis ball or throw a football,because they can tell by the feel of the act what the resultwill produce. NOTE: The Key Words are the same as Mechanism, but will have adverbs or adjectives that indicate that the performance is quicker, better, more accurate, etc. 12 3/9/2013
