Multiple-Choice Questions Based on Bloom’s Taxonomy
The Big Idea: Multiple choice questions can deliver powerful data. The Quick Key Blog is proud to bring you tools for writing effective MC questions, that require critical thinking, and yield powerful data.
According to Edglossary “Bloom’s taxonomy is a classification system used to define and distinguish different levels of human cognition—i.e., thinking, learning, and understanding.

Educators have typically used Bloom’s taxonomy to inform or guide the development of assessments(tests and other evaluations of student learning), curriculum (units, lessons, projects, and other learning activities), and instructional methods such as questioning strategies.”

Many educators are using Blooms Taxonomy as the underpinning of their assessment creation. We want to support educators who are doing this, so we pulled together some examples of multiple choice questions based on Bloom’s Taxonomy. We hope this is a helpful resource, and as always teach inspired.
