According to Benjamin Bloom, and his colleagues, there are six levels of cognition:

1. Knowledge: rote memorization, recognition, or recall of facts

2. Comprehension: understanding what the facts mean
3. Application: correct use of the facts, rules, or ideas
4. Analysis: breaking down information into component parts
5. Synthesis: combination of facts, ideas, or information to make a new whole
6. Evaluation: judging or forming an opinion about the information or situation

The examples above are objectives written for each level of Blooms Taxonomy and activities and assessment tools based on those
objectives. Common key verbs used in drafting objectives are also listed for each level.
