  4. 4. Taxonomy Descriptions <ul><li>KNOWLEDGE : The recall of data or information. </li></ul><ul><li>COMPREHENSION : Understanding information; interpreting and translating knowledge. </li></ul><ul><li>APPLICATION : Using a concept in a new situation; Applying prior knowledge to real life situations </li></ul><ul><li>ANALYSIS : Separating concepts into components to understand organizational structural. </li></ul><ul><li>SYNTHESIS : Puts parts together to form a whole. </li></ul><ul><li>EVALUATION : Making judgments about value, ideas, or materials. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Background History <ul><li>During the 1950s Benjamin Bloom along with </li></ul><ul><li>other college researchers developed the </li></ul><ul><li>following levels of educational domains: </li></ul><ul><li>Cognitive </li></ul><ul><li>Affective </li></ul><ul><li>Psychomotor </li></ul>

  7. 7. Cognitive Domain: Mind-Based <ul><li>Knowledge and development of intellectual skills </li></ul><ul><li>Recall or recognition of specific facts, procedural patterns, and concepts </li></ul><ul><li>Divided into six categories </li></ul>
  8. 8. Affective Domain: Belief-Based <ul><li>Receiving: attending to new information </li></ul><ul><li>Responding: interacting with new information </li></ul><ul><li>Valuing: seeking worth in new information </li></ul><ul><li>Organization: filtering new information into schema </li></ul><ul><li>Characterization: Integrating new information into schema </li></ul>
  9. 9. Psychomotor Domain: Skilled-Based <ul><li>Three Levels: </li></ul><ul><li>Imitation </li></ul><ul><li>Practice </li></ul><ul><li>Habit </li></ul>
  10. 10. Revision of Bloom’s Taxonomy <ul><li>During the 1990s, a former student of Bloom, revisited his taxonomy. As a result, changes were made. Nouns were changed to verb forms to illustrate that thinking is an active process. The knowledge level was renamed, comprehension became understanding, and synthesis was renamed creating. </li></ul>
