What is "Bloom Level"?

Eric Cheadle -

Bloom level taxonomy was created by Benjamin Bloom and is a framework for categorizing educational goals.  There are 6 levels utilized in EMSTesting and Platinum Tests, they are described below:


  1. Knowledge: You can recall or recognize information and ideas in the approximate form in which they were presented.
  2. Comprehension: You can translate and understand information based on prior learning.
  3. Application: You can use previously learned principles to complete a problem or task.
  4. Analysis: You can draw connections among ideas as well as break information into parts by identifying motives or causes.
  5. Synthesis: You can combine previously learned concepts and ideas in a new way that was not presented to you.
  6. Evaluation: You can make a judgment based on specific standards and criteria.
