Below is a list of sample tasks that could be used to measure a student’s comprehension of Bloom’s Taxonomy and a short explanation of assessment that could be used:
Knowledge: SWBAT find the mode, mean, median, and range for a set of data.
I would use either objective or performance assessment as this task is asking the student to come up with a specific answer.
Comprehension: SWBAT explain how to convert between fractions, decimals, and percents.
I would use either Authentic or Constructed Response Assessment for this task as it is asking the student to explain how they would attack a type of problem.
Application: SWBAT solve for the area of a rectangle using the formula A=lw
Objective or Performance Assessment could be used here as the student’s answer will either be right or wrong.
Analysis: SWBAT explain methods that can be used to compare and order fractions.
Constructed Response and Authentic could be used here as the task is asking the student to explain how he/she would arrive at an answer to a problem.
Synthesis: SWBAT describe some patterns he/she recognized in the construction of Pascal’s Triangle.
Subjective or maybe even Self Assessment could be used in this task–this would be a fun task!
Evaluation: SWBAT describe how to solve a problem using the 4-step method
Authentic or Constructed Response Assessment would be a good fit here again as the student is asked to explain a process.
