Teaching with the Revised Bloom's Taxonomy

Teaching with the Revised BloomsTaxonomy Janet Giesen Faculty Development and Instructional Design Center Taxonomy = Classification Classification of thinking Six cognitive levels of complexity Why use Blooms taxonomy? Write and revise learning objectives Plan curriculum Identifies simple to

most difficult skills Effectively align objectives to assessment techniques and standards Incorporate knowledge to be learned (knowledge dimension) and cognitive process to learn Facilitate questioning (oral language = important role within framework)

Change in Terms Categories noun to verb Taxonomy reflects different forms of thinking (thinking is an active process) verbs describe actions, nouns do not Reorganized categories Knowledge = product/outcome of thinking (inappropriate to describe a category of thinking) now remembering Comprehension now understanding Synthesis now creating to better reflect nature of thinking described by each category Handout # Changes in Structure Products of thinking part of taxonomy

Forms of knowledge = factual, conceptual, procedural, metacognitive (thinking about thinking) Synthesis (creating) and evaluation (evaluating) interchanged Creative thinking more complex form of thinking than critical thinking (evaluating) Handout # Changes in Emphasis USE: More authentic tool for curriculum planning, instructional delivery and assessment Aimed at broader audience Easily applied to all levels of education Revision emphasizes explanation and description of subcategories

Handout # Remembering The learner is able to recall, restate and remember learned information Describing Finding Identifying Listing Retrieving Naming Locating Recognizing Can students recall information?

Understanding Student grasps meaning of information by interpreting and translating what has been learned Classifying Comparing Exemplifying Explaining Inferring Interpreting Paraphrasing Summarizing Can students explain ideas or concepts?

Applying Student makes use of information in a context different from the one in which it was learned Implementing Carrying out c = Using Executing Can students use the information in another familiar situation? Analyzing

Student breaks learned information into its parts to best understand that information Attributing Comparing Deconstructing Finding Integrating Organizing Outlining Structuring Can students break information into parts to explore understandings and relationships? Evaluating Student makes decisions based on in-depth

reflection, criticism and assessment Checking Critiquing Detecting Experimenting Hypothesising Judging Monitoring Testing Can students justify a decision or a course of action? Creating Student creates new ideas and information using what previously has been learned

Constructing Designing Devising Inventing Making Planning Producing Can students generate new products, ideas, or ways of viewing things? Questioning . . . Lower level questionsremembering, understanding & lower level applying levels Lower level questions Evaluate students preparation and

comprehension Diagnose students strengths and weaknesses Review and/or summarizing content Handout # University of Illinois (2006) Questioning . . . Higher level questions require complex application, analysis, evaluation or creation skills Higher level questions Encourage students to think more deeply and critically Facilitate problem solving Encourage discussions

Stimulate students to seek information on their own Handout # University of Illinois (2006) Remembering stems What happened after...? How many...? What is...? Who was it that...? Name ... Find the definition of Describe what happened after Who spoke to...? Which is true or false...? (Pohl, 2000)

Understanding stems Explain why Write in your own words How would you explain? Write a brief outline... What do you think could have happened next...? Who do you think...? What was the main idea...? Clarify Illustrate (Pohl, 2000) Applying stems Explain another instance where Group by characteristics such as Which factors would you change if?
