Format: Paperback
This book was written almost 50 years ago and it is still widely used within education around the world. Bloom set out to create a common framework for categorising academic ability and his resulting taxonomy is still the de facto standard for classifying cognitive skills. Don't be put off by the age of the book - it's very readable - which perhaps reflects the timeless nature of his subject matter. Although some of his examples have aged (and perhaps were never particularly good examples), the book is accessible and interesting - and, as I've said, as useful today as it was 50 years ago. Highly recommended to anyone involved in writing test items. If you're interested, I've tried to provide more up-to-date examples on my Web site....

Bloom 'taxonomy of educational objectives' in education could be (for some aspects) compared to Darwins 'on the origin of species' in biology. Both books are often referred to and used as a starting point, are adapted and discussed. Both books also are not often read in the original version. Students mostly approach the taxonomy indirectly, more or less by hearsay. It therefore was refreshing to receive the 1956 print of this book and find out that for instance it wasn't just Bloom. He was the editor presenting combined quality. Condensed quality excelling in clarity, brevity and above all usefullness. The fresh look this book provides on education withstood many cohorts of teachers and educators. Moreover the writers have an approach to the subject and so different from other interpretations in that time that in their philosophy they must have broken with old rules and have started from scratch. I can only recommend students in education, don't be satisfied with a single sheet of highlights in your textbook, read the original!

This is a must-read, particularly in the field of systematic Instructional Design and specifically regarding learning objectives, criterion-referenced testing, etc. Bloom's work is the foundation for countless strategies, research, models, etc.
The series on all domians is a good addition to any teacher's library, regardless of content or level.

Format: Paperback
I have studied Bloom's Taxonomy, as have millions of other educators, and found his work immensely helpful in clarifying educational objectives and outcomes for my students. I was introduced to Bloom in graduate school where I studied Instructional Design. It was clear; those instructors who successfully implemented Bloom's work in their own teaching were of a higher caliber, easy to understand and more successful in helping the students to learn, not just recall facts and figures.

The earlier contributor is way off in their "review" of Bloom's work; and clearly paranoid.

Format: Paperback
Benjamin Bloom is a second generation transformational Marxist, dedicated to the destruction of the founding ideals that have made America great. Namely, accountability to a higher authority, the existence of revealed and absolute truth, and that man's heart is despiratly wicked, in need of internal or external restraints. Bloom and his buddies have simply cleaned up Theodore Adorno's work The Authoritarian Personality, for public consumption in teachers colleges. Bloom's work is based on false assumptions of human nature; there is no God, no absolute truth, and man is basically good, evolving, and perfectable.
Read pg. 32 where Bloom claims there is no lasting truths for all time and all places. Compare Bloom's statement with Engel's claim in Ludwig Feuerbach, "nothing is final, absolute, or sacred." In Bloom's affective domain book he blatently acknowledges Adorno and another Frankfort School Marxist as forming his "world view". The progressive restructuring educational movement has destroyed what was great in America. Read it and weep. Protect your children.
