Six Levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy and Its Importance.pdf

  2. INTRODUCTION Bloom’s taxonomy, developed by education researcher Benjamin Bloom, is a framework that can be used to evaluate the different levels of cognitive learning students achieve as they work through the course material. This type of evaluation helps educators target their lessons so that students learn in the most effective way possible. It also provides teachers with an easy way to measure how much students are actually learning during their time in class.
  3. KNOWLEDGE LEVEL At the Knowledge level, students can be asked to memorize facts or definitions. Common activities might include flashcards or matching games. For instance, if the topic is a famous historical event. Questions like “how many…? Who was it that…? Can you name the…?” fall under this category.
  4. COMPREHENSION LEVEL At the Comprehension level, students can be asked to demonstrate their understanding of the material by summarizing or paraphrasing. Common activities might include short answer questions or fill-in-the-blank exercises. For instance, if it is a chapter from literature. Questions like, “Can you write in your own words…? Can you write a brief outline…? What do you think could have happened next…?” fall under this category.
  5. APPLICATION LEVEL At the Application level, students can be asked to use what they have learned in a new situation. Common activities might include completing an activity sheet with multiple choice answers, completing worksheets, and participating in a role-play. For instance, if it is a chapter on science. Questions like “Choose the best statements that apply… Judge the effects of… What would result …?” fall under this category.
  6. ANALYSIS LEVEL At the Analysis level, students will explain the logic behind events. They will critically examine research papers and provide evidence for their analysis of text materials. Students will draw conclusions from past events, and engage in debate about topics like racism and discrimination. They will also offer suggestions for possible solutions. For instance, it is a literature chapter. Questions like, “Which events could have happened…? If … happened, how might the ending have been different? How was this similar to…” fall under this category.
  7. SYNTHESIS LEVEL Students at the Synthesis level will study different elements and ideas and combine them to give birth to new ideas or structures. They will learn how to identify common themes and patterns and draw conclusions from them. For instance, creating a presentation or project that integrates two previously studied topics such as Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice with Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.
  8. EVALUATION LEVEL At the evaluation stage, students will learn how to form critical judgments on different topics. They will learn how to give opinions based on certain criteria and standards and support them with logical reasoning and evidence. It is the highest level of thinking and requires the most complex mental processes. For instance, if it is a science experiment. Questions like “What criteria would you use to assess…? What data was used to evaluate…? How could you verify…?” fall under this category.
