6 Levels of Learning
Rote memory learning is over emphasized in many classrooms. Teachers and textbooks alike often minimize the value of higher-level thinking. Interestingly, research has consistently verified this observation. Whereas rote memory is a vital component in all learning environments, so is higher-level learning. The key is balance. From a teacher’s perspective, this requires writing and asking valid and reliable test questions at six different and separate learning levels.
This staff development manual provides administrators with approximately 2-3 hours of inservice training.
As teachers work through this manual they will learn:
- To identify the six levels of cognitive learning.
- To describe the six levels of cognitive learning.
- To write and ask questions on the six levels of cognitive learning.
- To identify the learning level of a cognitive question.
- To determine the distinct differences between the six types of cognitive questions.
- To develop thinking skills.
