Knowing the structure:
Divide the curriculum educational objectives into three "domains":
DOMAIN I: Cognitive Domain Includes:
Exhibit memory of learned materials by recalling facts, terms, basic concepts and answers
Demonstrate understanding of facts and ideas by organizing, comparing, translating, interpreting, giving descriptions, and stating the main ideas
Using new knowledge. Solve problems in new situations by applying acquired knowledge, facts, techniques and rules in a different way
Examine and break information into parts by identifying motives or causes. Make inferences and find evidence to support generalizations
Compile information together in a different way by combining elements in a new pattern or proposing alternative solutions
Present and defend opinions by making judgments about information, validity of ideas or quality of work based on a set of criteria
DOMAIN II: Affective Domain Includes
The lowest level; the student passively pays attention. Without this level no learning can occur. Receiving is about the student's memory and recognition as well.
The student actively participates in the learning process, not only attends to a stimulus; the student also reacts in some way.
The student attaches a value to an object, phenomenon, or piece of information. The student associates a value or some values to the knowledge he acquired.
The student can put together different values, information, and ideas and accommodate them within his/her own schema; comparing, relating and elaborating on what has been learned.
The student holds a particular value or belief that now exerts influence on his/her behavior so that it becomes a characteristic.
DOMAIN III: Psychomotor Domain Includes
The ability to use sensory cues to guide motor activity. This ranges from sensory stimulation, through cue selection, to translation.
Readiness to act. It includes mental, physical, and emotional sets. These three sets are dispositions that predetermine a person's response to different situations.
The early stages in learning a complex skill that includes imitation and trial and error. Adequacy of performance is achieved by practicing.
This is the intermediate stage in learning a complex skill. Learned responses have become habitual and the movements can be performed with some confidence and proficiency.
Complex Overt Response
The skillful performance of motor acts that involve complex movement patterns. Proficiency is indicated by a quick, accurate, and highly coordinated performance, requiring a minimum of energy.
Skills are well developed and the individual can modify movement patterns to fit special requirements.
Creating new movement patterns to fit a particular situation or specific problem. Learning outcomes emphasize creativity based upon highly developed skills.
