Bloom's Research and Response NUR/427 January 20, 2015 Trecia D. Jones, MSN, RN, CNL Bloom's Research and Response According to Bloom’s Taxonomy of Learning Domains, learning is divided into three main domains: cognitive is the thinking domain, affective is the emotion and feeling domain, and psychomotor is the physical and kinesthetic domain. Included in each domain is a taxonomy or classification. The taxonomies proceed from the simplest to most complex levels of the domain.

Organization of values in a hierarchy of importance; completes interrelationships and accommodates behavior to the value system. Internalizing of values is acting routinely with the new value; it becomes a way of life. The Psychomotor Domain The psychomotor domain includes physical movement, coordination, and use of the motor-skill areas (“University of Connecticut”, n.d.). There are five levels: imitation, manipulation, precision, articulation, and naturalization. Imitation is to replicate an action of another; observe and mirror the action. Manipulation is recreating an activity from instruction or memory. Precision is performing a skill reliably, independent of help, and the action is quick, smooth, and accurate. Articulation is adapting and articulating competence to satisfy a new context or task. Naturalization is instinctive, effortless and unconscious mastery of an activity and related skills at a strategic level. Conclusion In conclusion, Bloom’s Taxonomy of Learning Domains is extremely helpful in
