Definition of Knowledge. (in Bloom's taxonomy:
Most tasks require that learners recognize or remember key facts, definitions,
concepts, rules, and principles. Knowledge questions require students to
repeat verbatim or to paraphrase given information. To know information,
students need most often to rehearse or practice it, and then to associate
it with other, related concepts. The Bloom
taxonomy levels of knowledge and comprehension are subsumed here, since
verbatim repetition and translation into the student's own words represent
acceptable evidence of learning and understanding.
