Cognitive Rigor Matrices
Illustrates different levels of rigor
Combines elements of Bloom’s with DOK

Meeting Norms

We will learn about Depth
of Knowledge (DOK) and the Cognitive Rigor Matrix to gain a better understanding of rigorous questions and the role of DOK in classroom instruction.

We will be able to use DOK and the Cognitive Rigor Matrix to evaluate and adjust the rigor of questions. We will be able to share with peers the implications in daily classroom instruction.

Two Part Objective
Now that you are DOK experts, it's your turn...

Difficulty is a reference

1. Recall & Reproduction
2. Skills & Concepts
3. Strategic Thinking/Reasoning
