Bloom's taxonomy

Bloom’s cognitive taxonomy is a hierarchical model used to classify educational learning objectives into levels of complexity and specificity, and is frequently used to structure curriculum learning objectives, assessments, and activities. The models were named after Benjamin Bloom, who chaired the committee of educators that devised the taxonomy.
