Based on the 1956 work, Handbook I-Cognitive Domain, behavioral objectives are divided into subsets according to Bloom's Taxonomy. A taxonomy is simply a word for a classification and Bloom's work is concerned with a hierarchical delineation of levels of knowledge or thought. The following taxonomy is arranged so that it proceeds from the simplest to more complex levels.
The cognitive domain was revised in 2001 in a later work spearheaded by one of Bloom's former students, Lorin Anderson, and one of his original partners in defining the cognitive domain, David Krathwohl. See links below to the left for more information on these revisions as there are some important differences.
1. Knowledge: Remembering or retrieving previously learned material.
2. Comprehension: The ability to grasp or construct meaning from material
3. Application: The ability to use learned or implement material in new and concrete situations.
4. Analysis: The ability to break down or distinguish the parts of material into its components so that its organizational structure may be better understood.
5. Synthesis: The ability to put parts together to form a coherent or unique new whole.
6. Evaluation: The ability to judge, check, and even critique the value of material for a given purpose.
