Challenges to Curriculum and Teaching Based on Bloom's Taxonomy.
Fain, Stephen M.; Bader, Barbara
Bloom's Taxonomy is reviewed and analyzed in this report; the summative finding being that few educational innovations have had equal impact upon the profession. The taxonomy is first defined with particular attention being paid to "Handbook 1: Cognitive Domain." Various universities' and colleges' use of the taxonomy is described. Problems of research are discussed and a review of the research provided. Problems growing from the taxonomy in terms of application are also discussed. It is suggested that, because the taxonomy has influenced such a diverse group of people as researchers, measurement specialists, curriculum developers, and teachers, the problem with the taxonomy must be recognized as one of communication. There is noted to be a wide gap between those who expose the construct and those who put it to use. (JM)
