  • Level 1 – the Knowing Level: Exhibit memory of previously learned materials by recalling facts, terms, basic concepts and answers.

  • Level 2 – the Comprehension level: Demonstrative understanding of facts and ideas by organizing, comparing, translating, interpreting, giving descriptions, and stating main ideas.

  • Level 3 – the Application level: Using new knowledge. Solve problems to new situations by applying acquired knowledge, facts, techniques and rules in a different way.

  • Level 4 – the Analysis level: Examine and break information into parts by identifying motives or causes. Make inferences and find evidence to support generalizations.

  • Level 5 – the Evaluate level: Present and defend opinions by making judgments about information, validity of ideas or quality of work based on a set of criteria.

  • Level 6 – the Creation level: Compile information together in a different way by combining elements in a new pattern or proposing alternative solutions.
