Rigor and Relevance Bloom’s Taxonomy First, there is a continuum of knowledge that describes the increasingly complex ways in which we think. The Knowledge Taxonomy is based on the six levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy: (1) awareness (2) comprehension (3) application (4) analysis (5) synthesis (6) evaluation Application Model The second continuum, created by Dr. Willard R. Daggett, is known as the Application Model. The five levels of this action continuum are: (1) knowledge in one discipline (2) apply in discipline (3) apply across disciplines (4) apply to real-world predictable situations (5) apply to real-world unpredictable situations
