Aligning Assessment, Learning Activities and Teaching Strategies

This site is premised on the cognitive domains of the Bloom’s Taxonomy as a guide, and the resources are designed to provide suggestions for active verbs for learning outcome statements, sample assessment questions, practice activities for students, and teaching activities for facilitators.
