The purpose of Bloom’s Taxonomy is to divide “educational objectives into three ‘domains’: Cognitive, Affective, and Psychomotor (sometimes loosely described as knowing/head, feeling/heart and doing/hands respectively). Within the domains, learning at the higher levels is dependent on having attained prerequisite knowledge and skills at lower levels.” [Source]
This taxonomy provides educators with terminology to focus their lesson and to assist them in including all three domains, creating a more holistic form of education.
This image, provided by Smart Tutor, reflect the revised taxonomy. Bloom’s original taxonomy was updated in the late 1990s by Lorin Anderson and David Krathwohl.
The levels are Evaluating/Creating followed by Analyzing/Applying followed by Understanding/Remembering.
