SOLO Taxonomy
Extended Abstract
What is it?
SOLO Taxonomy is a model of learning that helps develop a
common understanding
language of learning
that helps teachers and students
understand the learning process*
With SOLO Taxonomy teachers and
are able to;
"Solo Taxonomy provides a simple and robust way of
describing how learning outcomes grow in complexity
from surface to deep understanding"
Biggs & Collis 1982
The 5 levels
of understanding
thoughtfully design learning intentions and learning experiences

identify and use effective strategies and success criteria

provide feedback and feed forward of learning outcomes

reflect meaningfully on what to do next*
What evidence is there that it works?
How can we use SOLO Taxonomy for learning?
Peer Assessment
Self Assessment
Teacher Assessment
Feed Forward
Learning Intentions

Co-constructed Learning
Success Criteria
Measuring Progress
Learning Objectives
Connective Learning
Hang on? Isn't this like Bloom's Taxonomy?
The language of learning
Bloom's Taxonomy is good for teachers for planning, questioning and checking learning.
...but not great for students

"I've done applying Sir, do I move onto analysis now?"
is not a frequently heard question in the classroom!
SOLO Taxonomy is an effective assessment tool for both teachers AND students.
Also, students can engage in effective feedback when they understand learning outcomes through SOLO.

They can
on how well they are going
"feed up"
on where they are going
"feed forward"
on the next steps in learning
What learning skills can students develop using SOLO Taxonomy?
This is where a student rethinks their new understanding at the
relational level, looks at it in a new way, and uses it as a basis for prediction, reflection or creation of new understanding.
When the flower arranger arranges his flowers he also arranges his mind and the mind of the person who looks at the flowers.

If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the people to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders.
Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.
