Special thanks to @Ana Cristina Pratas for sharing Don Clark's original post on http://www.nwlink.com/~donclark/hrd/bloom.html

 

Don has shared a vast number of resources on this post ranging from a diagram showing the changes between the original and updated Blooms to ISD concept maps and instructional design toolkits.  

Here is a quote from Don's post explaining Solo Taxonomy - "...one model that might prove more useful is the Structure of Observed Learning Outcome (SOLO) taxonomy. It is a model that describes levels of increasing complexity in a learner's understanding of subjects (Biggs, Collis, 1982). It aids both trainers and learners in understanding the learning process. The model consists of five levels in the order of understanding..." - See more at: http://www.nwlink.com/~donclark/hrd/bloom.html#sthash.X2Mab2Ks.dpuf
