The authors examine Bloom's Taxonomy of Learning for strengths and weaknesses and in this book create a new taxonomy of learning that builds off of the strengths and addresses the weaknesses. For those that have found Bloom (especially the revised version) a little confusing due to the role that knowledge plays in all subsequent levels (and is a necessary prerequisite for learning) - and then spreading this across four dimensions (including metacognitive, procedural, conceptual, etc.), and across three domains (cognitive, psychomotor, affective) - this taxonomy combines the three domains into six levels. Chapter 2 is where the taxonomy is revealed and explained - but don't skip chapter 1; the background provided makes understanding the taxonomy much easier.

There are several attempts to reinvent Bloom’s taxonomy in publication that we have reviewed before. Marzano’s version is featured in this publication with the obvious approval of a number of school administrator associations. Marzano’s taxonomy combines a self-system, a metacognitive system and a cognitive systems to produce knowledge. At each step of the revised taxonomy, Marzano and Kendall provide methods of assessment that are quite clear. For six types of learning within the above taxonomy such as metacognition, analysis, or compression, the reader is taught how to assess at that level with just enough examples that the reader can construct assessment measures. With assessment being a major topic of conversation across education in the new presidential administration, teacher librarians should be equipped to enter the conversation since our own new AASL Learning Standards require a much broader look at our own agenda and how it is to be assessed along side the agenda of the classroom teacher. For this reason, this book is labeled required reading for every teacher librarian in order to participate in the major conversations within the professional learning community of the school. One of the best publications along with James Popham’s Transformative Assessment (ASCD, 2008).
