Assessment Resources

One of the most difficult parts of creating an assessment can be finding the words to describe different learning goals. Bloom's taxonomy of learning from the 1950s is still a useful framework for giving us terms to guide assessment creation. Here are a few resources:

University of Arkansas's Using Bloom’s Taxonomy to Write Effective Learning Objectives
