Bloom's Taxonomy (Revised)
When looking at the NC Final Exams, the main verbs that appear based on the standards are the following:
- summarize (describe)
- compare (compare/contrast)
- Explain (cause & effect)
- Analyze (show relationships, viewpoints, bias)
- Evaluate (judgment based on evidence not on opinion)
Be aware, if you ask kids to analyze or evaluate, then you should include some sort of stimulus such as quotes, charts, or political cartoons.
Tests are written conceptually- students should be able to apply what they have learned. We need to move past content and focus on teaching Concepts, Inquiry, and Civic Action.
