In 1956, Benjamin Bloom headed a group of educational psychologists
who developed a classification of levels of intellectual behavior
important in learning. Bloom found that over 95% of the test
questions students encounter require them to think only at the
lowest possible level...the recall of information.
Bloom identified six levels within the cognitive
domain, from the simple recall or recognition of facts, as the
lowest level, through increasingly more complex and abstract
mental levels, to the highest order which is classified as evaluation.
