Purpose: This research aims at analyzing the attainments identified in the sociology curriculum for 11th grade implemented by the Ministry of National Education (MoNE) in 2010, and the evaluation questions in the sociology textbook which was taught in the 2016-2017 academic year, based on the Structure of Observed Learning Outcomes (SOLO) taxonomy. Research Methods: Document analysis was used in this study. The attainments that constitute the data source of the research were taken from the sociology curriculum for 11th grade published by the Ministry of National Education (MoNE) in 2010. Findings: Research findings indicate that 15 out of 60 (25%) attainments in the curriculum could be identified at the level of uni-structural, 14 (23%) multi-structural, 28 (47%) relational, and only 3 (5%) extended abstract. As for the evaluation questions in the textbook, 70 (43%) could be identified as uni-structural, 44 (27%) as multi-structural, 36 (23%) as relational, and 12 (7%) as extended abstract. Implications for Research and Practice: When the 11th grade sociology course achievements and assessment questions were examined, it was determined that all thinking levels of the SOLO taxonomy were found at different ratios. It is thought that when the experts prepare the program attainments for the sociology course, the organization of the attainments harmonized by prerequisite considering the principle of progressivity will be of considerable benefit in terms of effectiveness of the program.
