Blended and Online Assessment Taxonomy Infographic

The first part of an assessment design is the most obvious; the student performance, or more simply referred to as the activity. This requires a student to show the teacher what they know or can do. The second part assessment design is often assumed or omitted; however, this part of the assessment is critical to optimizing alignment to the objectives, and provides valuable support towards student success. This critical component is the grading plan or better named the feedback criteria. As a teacher, we need to effectively communicate to our learners both a description of how they will perform an assessment activity as well as a description of how we will judge the quality of their performance. Are you planning and communicating your feedback criteria? The Blended and Online Assessment Taxonomy Infographic presents types of activities that suit various levels of assessment as well as grading and feedback criteria which will help you plan better assessments.

14 Brilliant Bloom’s Taxonomy Posters For Teachers

Bloom’s Taxonomy is a useful tool for assessment design, but using it only for that function is like using a race car to go to the grocery–a huge waste of potential.

In an upcoming post we’re going to look at better use of Bloom’s taxonomy in the classroom, but during research for that post it became interesting how many variations there are of the original work. While a handful of the charts below only show aesthetic changes compared to others, most are concept maps of sorts–with graphic design that signifies extended function (power verbs), detail (clear explanations), or features of some sort (Bloom’s Taxonomy tasks by level).

We couldn’t find the original sources for a few of them, so if you’re an owner and aren’t credited in the image itself, please let us know. Also, if you have some favorites we missed let us know on facebook, twitter, or Google+ as well.
