- Cognitive: This domain includes the mental skills and abilities that are involved in acquiring, storing, and using knowledge, such as remembering, understanding, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating.
- Affective: This domain includes the emotional and attitudinal aspects of learning, such as motivation, attitudes, values, and self-esteem.
- Psychomotor: This domain includes the physical skills and abilities that are involved in learning, such as coordination, dexterity, and fine motor skills.
- Remembering: This level involves recalling or remembering previously learned information.
- Understanding: This level involves comprehending the meaning of the information and being able to explain it in one's own words.
- Applying: This level involves using the information in a new context or situation.
- Analyzing: This level involves breaking down the information into smaller parts and examining the relationships among them.
- Synthesizing: This level involves combining and integrating the information in a new way, such as creating a new product or solution.
- Evaluating: This level involves making judgments about the value or quality of the information based on criteria or standards.
