Writing Higher Level Learning Objectives: The Cognitive Domain.
This two-part learning module is designed to assist instructors in writing behavioral course objectives that will provide their students with precise statements of what is expected of them in terms of high-level cognitive learning, that is, learning that involves analysis or judgement. Part I of the module defines behavioral objectives as those which call for specific responses from learners, and discusses the hierarchy of those objectives within the cognitive and affective domains of Bloom's Taxonomy. Part II discusses the application of behavioral objectives and Bloom's Taxonomy to the classroom situation. It also provides examples of written learning objectives at each level of the cognitive domain, i.e., knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. Exercises, suggested activities, and tests are provided throughout the module to reinforce the concepts and their application. (JP)
