Bloom’s Taxonomy

Overview

Benjamin Bloom created a taxonomy of measurable verbs to help describe and classify observable knowledge, skills, attitudes, behaviours and abilities.

The theory is based upon the idea that there are levels of observable actions that indicate something is happening in the brain (cognitive activity). By creating learning objectives using measurable verbs, you indicate explicitly what pupils must do in order to demonstrate learning.
