He was one of the greatest minds toinfluence the field of education. He wasborn on February 21, 1913 in Lansford,Pennsylvania. As a young man, he wasalready an avid reader and curiousresearcher.
Bloom’s most recognized and highlyregarded initial work spawned from hiscollaboration with his mentor andfellow examiner Ralph W. Tyler andcame to be known as Bloom’sTaxonomy.These ideas are highlighted in his third publication, Taxonomyof Educational Objectives: Handbook I, The Cognitive Domain.He later wrote a second handbook for the taxonomy in 1964,which focuses on the affective domain. Bloom’s research inearly childhood education, published in his 1964 Stability andChange in Human Characteristics sparked widespread interestin children and learning and eventually and directly led to theformation of the Head Start program in America. In all, Bloomwrote or collaborated on eighteen publications from 1948-1993.

Evaluation requires an individual to make a judgment about something.Evaluation questions do not have single right answers.

Expert OpinionNever end a presentation byasking, “Are there anyquestions?” This is the surest wayto turn off students. Instead, saysomething like, “Take fiveminutes and write down twoquestions you have about thelesson. Share those questionsand discuss possible answerswith a partner.”
*** Knowledge *** Who are in the picture?Where was this picture taken?
*** Comprehension *** What is happening in this picture?Why are these children dressed like this?
*** Application ***How would you describe the photograph to others? What caption would you write for this photograph?
*** Analysis *** Why are these children here and not in school?What do you know about their lives based on this photo?
*** Synthesis ***What might these children say about their work in an interview setting? What might they say about their future?
*** Evaluation ***What is the significance of this photo for the time period depicted? Compare this photo with one of thechildren in a subdivision of the sameage. How are their lives similar? How are they different?
During the 1990s, a former student ofBlooms, Lorin Anderson, led a newassembly which met for the purpose ofupdating the taxonomy, hoping to addrelevance for 21st century students andteachers.The changes occur in three broadcategories: terminology, structure, andemphasis.
Blooms six major categories werechanged from noun to verb forms.
The new terms are defined as:Remembering: Retrieving, recognizing,and recalling relevant knowledge fromlong-term memory.Understanding: Constructing meaningfrom oral, written, and graphic messagesthrough interpreting, exemplifying,classifying, summarizing, inferring,comparing, and explaining.
Applying: Carryingout or using aprocedure throughexecuting, orimplementing. Analyzing: Breaking material into constituent parts, determining how the parts relate to one another and to an overall structure or purpose through differentiating, organizing, and attributing.
Evaluating: Making judgments based on criteria and standards through checking and critiquing.Creating: Putting elementstogether to form a coherent orfunctional whole; reorganizingelements into a new pattern orstructure through generating,planning, or producing.
