Quick Reference

Bloom's taxonomy identifies a hierarchy of cognitive skills that can be developed through the process of learning. The classification is as follows: (1) knowledge (simple knowledge of facts, conceptual terms, theoretical models); (2) comprehension (an understanding of the meaning of knowledge); (3) application (the ability to apply knowledge to new situations or a changed context); (4) analysis (the ability to break material down into its constituent parts and identify the connections between them); (5) synthesis (the ability to reassemble the parts into a new and meaningful relationship); (6) evaluation (the ability to judge the value of material using explicit criteria, either developed by the learner or derived from other sources).
