What is it?
SOLO Taxonomy is a model of learning that helps develop a
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
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?
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.
on how well they are going
on where they are going
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.
