2.1.1 Learning Objectives and Bloom’s Taxonomy

Learning goals and objectives help you develop a set of performance expectations, which then enable you to develop content that is appropriate for your instruction. With skills to prioritize and organize learning goals, you can build a teaching foundation to ensure that you can guide and measure student learning.Thus, it is critical to know:

  • What should students learn?
  • How will students demonstrate what they have learned?
  • How will students learn for future learning?

To properly assess student learning, it is essential to create defined and attainable outcomes.

Learning objectives measure behaviors and anticipated outcomes as a result of instruction and require that a teacher:

  • Decide what activities and behaviors will be monitored.
  • Give students the opportunity to demonstrate what they know.
  • Discuss with students how they did on assessments.

With these ideas in mind, you will have a frame and a guide to assessment. This process will inform your teaching practice.
