SOLO Taxonomy: A Guide for Schools introduces teachers to a simple way of differentiating learning outcomes as well as providing students with an effective method of self-assessment. It translates “learning how to learn” from a pedagogical principle into an everyday practice in the classroom by making learning outcomes visible for teachers, students and parents. SOLO Taxonomy offers a clear, simple and robust way of identifying the level of cognitive complexity of learning intentions and outcomes, and consequently making feedback and feed forward more effective in the learning process. Both teachers and students at all primary and secondary levels find SOLO Taxonomy a highly functional, useful way of clarifying their thinking and providing valuable feedback to others.
This book focuses on SOLO Taxonomy’s common language of learning, which assists teachers and principals to write learning intentions and identify supporting strategies and success criteria, and students to self-assess their learning outcomes.
