What is Bloom's Taxonomy?

Bloom's Taxonomy is an educational classification system of learning objectives for students that was originally developed by a committee of educators chaired by Dr. Benjamin Bloom.  A revised version of the taxonomy, generally known as the “New Bloom’s,” was created in 2000.

The most commonly used taxonomy is in the cognitive domain.  This reflects levels of thinking and learning that are interdependent. The two lower levels are knowledge (remembering) and comprehension (understanding).  The next level is application (applying) followed by the three highest levels: analysis (analyzing), synthesis (creating) and evaluation (evaluating).
