Cognitive Rigor What does cognitive rigor mean to you?
We are asking for more cognitive demand from our students… The kind and level of thinking required of students to successfully engage with and solve a task. The kind and level of thinking required of students to successfully engage with and solve a task. Ways in which students interact with content. Ways in which students interact with content.
DOK is not about difficulty; its about complexity ! It’s about the ways that our students’ interact with content!
Webb’s Depth of Knowledge http://vimeo.com/42788913
What is the difference between Bloom’s and Webb? Bloom’s Taxonomy –What type of thinking (verbs) is needed to complete a task? Webb’s Depth of Knowledge –How deeply do you have to understand the content to successfully interact with it? How complex is the content?
“A mile wide and an inch deep” What does DOK focus on? Focuses on complexity of content standards in order to successfully complete an assessment or task. The outcome (product) is the focus of the depth of understanding.
What DOK is NOT!!!! a taxonomy (Bloom’s) the same as difficulty about using “verbs” NOT The Depth of Knowledge is NOT determined by the verb (Bloom’s Taxonomy), but by the context in which the verb is used and the depth of thinking required. With DOK what comes after the verb is more important than the verb itself!
T here is usually a right answer! The focus is on strategic thinking, so there can be multiple right answers!
DOK: Level 1 Recall and Reproduction Suggested Activities: Develop a concept map showing a progress or describing a topic Make a timeline Cut out, or draw a picture that illustrates an event, process, or story Make a cartoon strip showing the sequence of an event, process, or story Write and perform… Write a brief outline and explain the event, process, or story Write a summary report of an event Prepare flow charts that illustrates the sequence of events Basic measurement tasks that involve one step (i.e. using a ruler to measure length) Locating information in maps, charts, tables, graphs, and drawings
DOK: Level 2 Basic Application of Skills/Content Suggested Activities: Construct a model to demonstrate how it looks or works Make a diorama to illustrate an event Write a diary/blog entry Make a scrapbook about the area of study Make a topographic map Make up a puzzle or game about the topic Make a model… More complex calculation tasks (i.e. multi-step calculations such as standard deviation) Research projects and writing activities that involve locating, collecting, organizing and displaying information (i.e. writing a report with the purpose to inform; meeting all steps of the writing process) Measurement tasks that occur over a period of time and involve aggregating/ organizing the data collected into basic presentation forms such as a simple table or graph.

DOK: Level 3 Strategic Thinking Suggested Activities: Use a Venn Diagram that shows how two topics are the same and different Design a questionnaire to gather information Survey classmates/industry members to find out what they think about a particular topics Make a flow chart to show the critical stages Prepare a report about an area of study Write a letter to the editor after evaluating a product Make a booklet about five rules you see as important. Convince others. Write a letter to … advertising on changes needed Explaining and/or working with abstract terms and concepts Complex calculation problems presented that draw upon multiple processes Creating graphs, tables and charts where students must reason through and organize the information with instructor prompts.
