  4. 4. The TaxonomyRemembering: Retrieving, recognizing, and recalling relevant knowledge from long-term memory.Understanding: Constructing meaning from oral, written, and graphic messages through interpreting, exemplifying, classifying, summarizing, inferring, comparing, and explaining.Applying: Carrying out or using a procedure through executing, or implementing.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 elements together to form a |coherent or functional whole; reorganizing elements into a new pattern or structure through generating, planning, or producing.(Anderson & Krathwohl, 2001, pp. 67-68). www.PerfTestPlus.com Testing Tasks and Bloom’s Taxonomy Page 4© 2007 PerfTestPlus, Inc.
