North Carolina thinking skills
Model of thinking skills adopted by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction in 1994. Lists seven levels of thinking skills from simplest to most complex: knowledge, organizing, applying, analyzing, generating, integrating, and evaluating.
See also Dimensions of Learning model.
The North Carolina Thinking Skills are based on Marzano’s Dimensions of Learning model (focusing, information gathering, remembering, organizing, analyzing, generating, integrating, evaluating) The first three categories (focusing, information gathering, remembering) are reduced to a category called knowledge, and Bloom’s category applying is inserted. They inserted the category called applying from the Bloom model, a level that Marzano had dropped.
