ImporItant information:

To generate a good exam, it is important to consider the intended complexity levels of the test questions for that topic; these levels may include easy, medium, difficult. Bloom’s Taxonomy suggests the “Level of Cognition” or “Ranking of Thinking Skills”. The table below indicates Bloom’s levels of cognitive activity in a grid moving (left to right) from simple to complex, and it lists a number of verbs describing activities for each mode of thinking.
