Have you ever been told that your assessments are "too hard" or "too easy?" Bloom's Taxonomy provides six categories that provide an excellent opportunity to assist educators in writing effective assessments that measure a wide spectrum of learning ranging from basic knowledge comprehension to higher level critical thinking skills. The University of Georgia's College of Education created a guide to writing questions based on Bloom's taxonomy. Here is a link to that guide: http://wwild.coe.uga.edu/pptgames/resources/bloom_questions.pdf
