Bloom’s taxonomy is a framework that includes six different levels of thinking, starting from basic factual recall and moving up to more intricate and abstract mental processes. The taxonomy is divided into a pyramid, where the bottom three items comprise the lower-order thinking skills (LOTS), which prioritise memorization and recalling capacities. The top three skills in the pyramid constitute higher-order thinking skills, or HOTS, concerned with the ability to analyse, synthesise, and evaluate information and solve problems creatively.
