Designing, Scaffolding, & Grading Assignments Using Bloom’s Cognitive Taxonomy

Bloom’s taxonomies are powerful tools for teaching, learning, and assessment that help clarify your course learning goals across different skill levels, better enabling you to guide students toward mastery. In this workshop, you’ll learn about all three taxonomies: cognitive, affective, and psychomotor. Then, we’ll apply Bloom’s cognitive taxonomy to some example assignments. By the end of the session, you will have increased familiarity with designing assignments that enhance students’ learning experience and accurately capture students’ learning. Look for future sessions on applying the affective and psychomotor taxonomies.
