  • I'd love to hear thoughts on this article. Are we wise to allow students to use tech in class or do we tuck devices away unless the assignment requires them?

Depth of Knowledge | Rethinking Learning - Barbara Bray

Highlights and Sticky Notes:

DOK is about...
  • what FOLLOWS the verb. What comes after the verb is more important than the verb itself.
  • the complexity of mental processing that must occur to complete a task.
  DOK is NOT about...
  • verbs. The verbs are a valuable guide, but they can sometimes be used at more than one level.
  • the difficulty of what they are learning. All levels of DOK have a place in a rigorous curriculum.
  • Mini-Activity:
    Take a look at the DOK Wheel--can you identify some verbs that are cross-level? How might they 'look' at each level?  - Sharin Tebo


Norman Webb identified four levels for assessing the DOK of content standards and assessment items.
  • Level 1: Recall
  • Level 2: Skill or Concept
  • Level 3: Strategic Thinking
  • Level 4: Extended Thinking

DOK implies the interaction of how deeply a student needs to understand the content with different ways of responding and interacting with the content.
  • What might that look like? What does it mean to respond and then interact with content?  - Sharin Tebo

he level of a DOK item is determined by the task

ask does not change with grade or ability
