The Application of Bloom's Cognitive Taxonomy to Selected Professional Education Competencies.
Spaziani, Richard L.; Courtney, E. Wayne
The central problem of this study was to determine the hierarchial levels of common professional education competencies needed by community college and secondary school vocational instructors. A survey-type questionnaire was developed using a six-point ordinal scale corresponding to the major headings of Bloom's cognitive taxonomy. The population consisted of selected vocational education instructors from Oregon's community colleges and secondary schools. The results were analyzed using the Q-Mode and R-Mode factor analysis techniques. It was concluded that 57 of the 99 professional competencies could be classified as having high levels of correlation and could be grouped into meaningful competency clusters typified by the study's sample population. The data indicated vocational-technical educators resembled one another with regard to the hierarchial values assigned to the professional education competencies. (GEB)
