Bloom’s Taxonomy

I must admit I am only vaguely familiar with Bloom’s Taxonomy. Prior to taking this course I had only heard of it, but never knew the details. It was something I wanted to look into. In reading for this course I found that the outcome types that I keep in mind when designing exams (Memory/knowledge, Application, Understanding) mirror Bloom’s taxonomy, at least in the cognitive domain. Nevertheless, I would like to know more about the topic and specifically how it can guide me in assessments. It is with particular interest that I came across this article applying the taxonomy to my own subject area.
