Bloom's taxonomy

This site describes the changes that have occurred in the taxonomy first proposed by Benjamin Bloom in 1956. The revision of Dr. Bloom's taxonomy was spearheaded by a former student, Dr. Lorin Anderson and a group of distinguished cognitive psychologist, curriculum specialist, assessment specialist, and industrialist. This revision of the taxonomy was first published in 1991. This site clearly explains the changes mande in the revision, and offers clear applications for the "new and improved" taxonomy in the planning and assessment of teaching and learning.
