03: Bloom's Level 1 Writing

Learning Objective (LO) is an explicit statement of a demonstrable learning outcome. It is structured in a way that it includes scope of action and the topical content to be covered.
The learning objectives written at Bloom’s level 1—knowledge—require the learners to recall or recognize information. At Bloom’s level 1—knowledge—typical verbs used to start the learning objectives include: Define, Describe, Identify, State, and List.

Note: Bloom’s taxonomy is the standard for writing learning objectives in e-learning courses, which are typically in the cognitive domain. Other techniques, such as SMART (specific, measurable, agreed, realistic, time-bound) and Mager’s are available, but sparingly used, and usually not in e-learning.


Example: The example demonstrates how to correctly write learning objective at Bloom’s Level 1.

Input

The ADDIE model’s five phases create a structured and effective flow that guides and controls course development. The following is a brief description of each phase:

  • Analysis involves gathering information about the need for the course, current problems, the work environment, and the learners.
  • Design involves determining how the course should be taught and formulates objectives, test items, course structure, instructional approach, and strategies.
  • Development involves developing storyboards and producing the course content, focusing on the different elements of the course such as text, graphics, audio, video and animation.
  • Implementation involves delivering the course to the learners.
  • Evaluation involves assessing the effectiveness of the course.


Output

List the five phases of ADDIE model.

In this example, the learning objective written for the content is specific and requires the learner to recall the phases of the ADDIE model.


Non-Example: The non-example demonstrates how not to write learning objective at Bloom’s level 1.

Input

The ADDIE model’s five phases create a structured and effective flow that guides and controls course development. The following is a brief description of each phase:

  • Analysis involves gathering information about the need for the course, current problems, the work environment, and the learners.
  • Design involves determining how the course should be taught and formulates objectives, test items, course structure, instructional approach, and strategies.
  • Development involves developing storyboards and producing the course content, focusing on the different elements of the course such as text, graphics, audio, video and animation.
  • Implementation involves delivering the course to the learners.
  • Evaluation involves assessing the effectiveness of the course.


Output

Write the five phases of ADDIE model.

In this non-example, the learning objective written for the content requires the learner to recall the phases of the ADDIE model. However, the objective written does not give the learner a clear idea of how to demonstrate the expected performance.
