Bloom's Taxonomy and Critical Thinking

3. - Application refers to the ability to use learned material in new and concrete situations. This may include the application of such things as rules, methods, concepts, principles, laws, and theories. Learning outcomes in this area require a higher level of understanding than those of comprehension.

I think a key aspect to this is that when designing a learning programme we need to have a clear understanding of the role in question. Hopefully we have carried out some form of Job Analysis to inform what elements need to be part of the learning programme. It is this Job Analysis that should inform the level in the Blooms taxonomy that the learning should reach, not some broad categorisation of how managers at certain levels should be operating.

There is perhaps more opportunity for this within one particular organisation, but even then I would proceed with caution. Different environments within the same company may demand different things from managers – even those that are classed as operating at the same level. Perhaps it really depends on what learning you are talking about – in your ‘team building’ example, it may well be that an organisation has pre-defined competencies that it would expect to see at different management grades, irrespective of the area of the business. In this case you may be able to make some common assumptions regarding the Blooms level that you should reach for each of those grades. However, if the learning is more specific to individual environments then this is going to be tricky (and potentially unwise).

I was asked via twitter recently what I thought about Blooms Taxonomy?

Bloom's Taxonomy - Chemistry With Bloom

In 1956, Benjamin Bloom with collaborators Max Englehart, Edward Furst, Walter Hill, and David Krathwohl published a framework for categorizing educational goals: Taxonomy of Educational Objectives. Familiarly known as , this framework has been applied by generations of K-12 teachers and college instructors in their teaching.

BLOOM’S TAXONOMY What is your thinking level

As a whole, bloom's taxonomy stresses the need for teachers to encourage the use of high-level skills amongst pupils - not simply the lower-level ones. By doing this, information is retained for longer by the student, whereas simply addressing the basics is likely to result in the key facts being forgotten soon after they're taught.

4. - Analysis refers to the ability to break down material into its component parts so that its organizational structure may be understood. This may include the identification of the parts, analysis of the relationship between parts, and recognition of the organizational principles involved. Learning outcomes here present a higher intellectual level than comprehension and application because they require an understanding of both the content and structural form of the material.

We shouldn’t worry about capping because those more capable individuals within our organisations are then likely to naturally exceed that level, especially after some practical experience. Hopefully the organisation has some way of recognising those individuals (through an appraisal system perhaps) because it is those individuals who then show the potential to progress to the next level of management. It’s all about balance, but in my view, recruiting a certain % of managers from within has to make good business sense. Those that don’t show that extra potential then continue to operate at the level to which the learning was designed – this is all fine too.

Bloom’s Taxonomy is a classification system developed in 1956 by education psychologist Benjamin Bloom to categorize intellectual skills and behavior important to learning. Bloom identified six cognitive levels: knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation, with sophistication growing from basic knowledge-recall skills to the highest level, evaluation.

Levels of Questions in Bloom's Taxonomy

The framework elaborated by Bloom and his collaborators consisted of six major categories: Knowledge, Comprehension, Application, Analysis, Synthesis, and Evaluation. The categories after Knowledge were presented as “skills and abilities,” with the understanding that knowledge was the necessary precondition for putting these skills and abilities into practice.
