Designing and Assessing Educational Objectives: Applying the New Taxonomy by Robert J. MarzanoBlooms Taxonomy has been the standard in developing educational objectives for many years--knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. Now, Robert Marzano contends that Blooms taxonomy doesnt go far enough. According to Marzano, there are six levels--retrieval, comprehension, analysis, knowledge utilization, metacognitive system, and self system. Each of these six can be broken down into domains of knowledge--information, mental procedures, and psychomotor procedures. Multiple examples are given in tables and with the use of graphic organizers.

This book integrates objectives, instructional approaches, and assessment options so that these critical aspects of teaching are aligned to promote student learning. A hands-on guide for applying the New Taxonomy to develop meaningful and targeted educational objectives and assessments. Translating mandated standards into concrete objectives and then creating appropriate tasks to assess student learning of those objectives can be a challenge for educators. This practical resource provides a step-by-step process that shows readers how to make designing educational objectives and creating appropriate assessment tasks a part of their day-to-day practice. Written as a stand-alone volume, Designing and Assessing Educational Objectives reviews the framework and basic principles of Marzano's New Taxonomy and illustrates how educators can utilize Marzano's model to assess student performance on a broad scale or for a specific unit of instruction or grading period.
