All of us know that ITIL qualification scheme is based on bloom’s taxonomy. Well, most of us know that….! ok… some of us know that….? Leave it,  if you didn’t know, here is the knowledge bit of the day for you!! 🙂

So what is bloom’s taxonomy and how is it used in the ITIL qualification scheme? I recently wrote an article on our company website. Here are some extracts from that:

What is Bloom’s Taxonomy?

Taxonomy means ‘classification’.

Blooms Taxonomy represents a model for Classifying objectives and goals of training/education programs, created by Mr. Benjamin Bloom in 1950s.

Bloom created three domains of learning namely: Cognitive, Psychomotor and Affective

This model was revised by Anderson & Krathwohl in 2001 to assist better interpretation and use.

The Foundation level maps to the knowledge and comprehension with focus on fundamentals of the framework.

The Intermediate level programs maps to the analysis and application levels of the model.

The Managing through lifecycle and the advanced (master) levels of ITIL certification focuses on the top two levels of the Bloom’s model: Evaluation and Synthesis.

The ITIL certification scheme levels are mapped to the 6 levels of Bloom’s taxonomy as shown.
