The report presents the results of innovation projects carried out by academic staff at University of Wales-Centro San Luis (Bilbao) focused in using Bloom’s taxonomy (BT) for course and assessment design. BT is being used in second level modules of the degree Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Computing, having as objectives both specifying assessable learning objectives and assessing the cognitive difficulty of the courses.

Our approach, based on the hierarchical model of BT developed by Johnson et al [1], pretends to put students into activities that will motivate and force them to apply higher level cognitive skills. The originality of our work relies on the gradual extension of the original model from modules to the complete degree program, adding also Bloom weights to each course and in the characteristics of the center (highly targeted at teaching applied computer sciences and attended by students with heterogeneous backgrounds).
One of the main topics of further work consists in adding learning style measure tools to the actual BT framework.
