 Depth of Knowledge - Depth of Knowledge - New York City Department of Education | Cognitive Rigor | Scoop.it

Webb's Depth of Knowledge (DOK) provides a vocabulary and a frame of reference when thinking about our students and how they engage with the content. DOK offers a common language to understand "rigor," or cognitive demand, in assessments, as well as curricular units, lessons, and tasks.

... questions/tasks with Webb's Depth of Knowledge (DOK). The 2012-2013 data showed we were not very different from other districts; therefore, our teams set their own goals for higher-order thinking and depth of knowledge.
John R. Walkup's insight:

Discusses how teachers use Bloom's Taxonomy and Depth of Knowledge in different ways, which supports our view of the relationship between the two components of cognitive rigor.

What’s New About the Common Core State Standards?

Are the Common Core Standards more rigorous?

 

Sue Gendron:

 

Much higher. In the work I’m involved in with the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium, we’re actually using a cognitive rigor matrix that was developed in 2009. It uses Bloom’s taxonomy and Norman Webb’s depth of knowledge to define what students need to be able to demonstrate to show that they’ve achieved proficiency.

Rigor matters because it imposes cognitive load on students, forcing them to confront misconceptions, reconsider positions, separate the implicit from the explicit, and other critical thinking practices that distinguish shaky familiarity from true understanding.

Bloom’s Taxonomy Paint Palette

Bloom’s Taxonomy Paint Palette | Cognitive Rigor | Scoop.it

"An article I read this week had me thinking about Bloom’s Taxonomy and what learning really is.  It led to me coming up with a new graphic for Bloom’s Taxonomy, this one a Paint Palette.  I like thinking about Bloom’s in the form of an artist paint palette because each color has equal importance.  For an artist, the greatest beauty comes in the mixing of colors.  Using a multitude of shades and blends on a canvas.  I think the same can be said of learning."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 19, 2013 2:14 PM

This is a work in progress based on student work at Anastasis Academy. We know that we would like our students to be able to demonstrate their understanding in a variety of ways, but often they find one way and that becomes the only way (from their perspective). In this post Kelly Tenkely describes her experiences with students at Anastasis Academy and how this experience has led her to create this paint palette that will contain two additional components.

Along with this palette you will find a painting that provides "students ideas for different outcomes and evidences of learning" and a component that is still a work in progress, that will "an app and website catalog organized by the same colors so that students can be introduced to the many options they have for the different types of learning and producing." You can see the page with apps in this post that are specific to Create and additional pages with apps will be posted in the future.

Sue Alexander's curator insight, July 21, 2013 9:40 PM

An excellent analogy, and a visual my students will surely relate to in the Art Room. I think this will be helpful as they plan and reflect upon their own learning goals.

Jessica Rebstock's curator insight, July 22, 2013 11:55 AM

I appreciate that this view of Bloom's Taxonomy is less linear. Every course needs a different blend of Bloom's learning levels.
