The figure illustrates Bloom’s Taxonomy of skills as a pyramid. The lowest-order skill is remember, which forms the base of the pyramid, progressing to understand, apply, analyze, and evaluate. Create is the highest-order skill, forming the peak of the pyramid. Each category includes a definition. For remember, the definition is “learners can recall facts and concepts.” For understand, the definition is “learners can explain ideas and concepts in their own words.” For apply, the definition is “learners can transfer information and skills to use in new contexts.” For analyze, the definition is “learners can synthesize information, identify patterns, draw conclusions.” For evaluate, the definition is “learners can assess arguments, choose and justify a position.” For create, the definition is “learners can use what they have learned to produce new ideas and original work.”
