Bloom’s Taxonomy and Learning Games

Knowledge Guru

Use Bloom’s Taxonomy to help you craft your objectives and accurately assess what level of cognitive skill learners need to use to produce your goal. Most complex tasks require us to use multiple levels within the taxonomy. Bloom’s Taxonomy categorizes learning into six levels of thinking, with each level adding complexity. The original taxonomy is from 1956, with a revised taxonomy developed in 2001. Bloom’s Taxonomy and Game Types.

Learning Measurement: A Work in Progress

CLO Magazine

Learning evaluation, metrics and measurement are not where they need to be, but some companies have made progress. Content has become more targeted, delivery methods have expanded, and the classroom has changed into a more collaborative, supplemental learning space. Learning evaluation and measurement have come a long way since Donald Kirkpatrick, widely credited as a trailblazer in the field, first introduced his four levels of learning evaluation in 1959.

Alternatives to Kirkpatrick

bozarthzone

While the Kirkpatrick taxonomy is something of a sacred cow in training circles—and much credit goes to Donald Kirkpatrick for being the first to attempt to apply intentional evaluation to workplace training efforts—it is not the only approach. Apart from being largely atheoretical and ascientific (hence, 'taxonomy', not 'model' or 'theory'), several critics find the Kirkpatrick taxonomy seriously flawed. More later on alternatives to the Kirkpatrick taxonomy.
