3/10/2014 – Brainstorming with Bloom

In this week’s lab meeting, we discussed how exam questions can be analyzed with Bloom’s Taxonomy. We defined the six Levels of Learning are for Bloom’s taxonomy: Knowledge, Comprehension, Application, Analysis, Synthesis, and Evaluation. Individual lab members practiced the technique and discussed why each question was given the specific Level of Learning. As a group, we brainstormed how we can use these Levels of Learning to develop a method for analyzing student performance in upper division courses.
