    Psychomotor Domain Performance Gap Analysis

    1050-1400-word paper that examines the role of Bloom's performance model in identifying performance gaps for an activity in the psychomotor domain (e.g., juggling, playing a musical instrument, learning to play a sport, etc.). Identify each level in the psychomotor domain and provide examples of a gap in performance for each level.

    Conduct a search for Bloom's psychomotor domain to access the psychomotor categories as developed by Simpson (1972). Please use this reference as a starting point for the assignment.

    The psychomotor domain refers to the use of basic motor skills, coordination, and physical movement. Bloom's research group did not develop in-depth categories of this domain, claiming lack of experience in teaching these skills. However, Simpson (1972) developed seven psychomotor categories to support Bloom's domain.

    Origination a learner's ability to create new movement patterns
    Adaptation a learner's ability to modify motor skills to fit a new situation
    Complex Overt Response the intermediate stage of learning a complex skill
    Mechanism the ability to perform a complex motor skill
    Guided Response the early stage of learning a complex skill which includes imitation
    Set a learner's readiness to act
    Perception the ability to use sensory cues to guide physical activity

    Hello and welcome to Brain Mass! You logged in and asked for help with the following:

    Examines the role of Bloom's performance model in identifying performance gaps for an activity in the psychomotor domain (e.g., juggling, playing a musical instrument, learning to play a sport, etc.). Identify each level in the psychomotor domain and provide examples of a gap in performance for each level.

    Conduct a search for Bloom's psychomotor domain to access the psychomotor categories as developed by Simpson (1972). Please use this reference as a starting point for the assignment.

    I was able to assemble some notes from prior sessions where we discussed both Bloom and Simpson, and I also added some more notes about both theories for your review. I am sure that this information will help you when you go to complete your assignment!

    Bloom's Taxonomy is a great theory to use when teaching, training, or learning. The model allows educators to plan personal development for every learning style through the use of a quick-and-easy checklist. With this taxonomy, educators are able to discover all possibilities of the subject or need concerns as well as develop host of methods for delivery of instruction.

    For students, Bloom's Taxonomy opens up the door for learning in a way that they will best be able to understand the material being presented to them. As well, Bloom's Taxonomy reduces the possibility of overlooking any aspect of development that is needed by the student. "The more detailed elements within each domain provide additional reference points for learning design and evaluation, whether for a single lesson, session or activity, or training need, or for an entire course, programme or syllabus, across a large group of trainees or students, or a whole organization" (Bloom Taxonomy - Learning Domains). And because Bloom's Taxonomy is "continuously evolving" (Bloom Taxonomy - Learning Domains), other academic scholars have been able to build upon the basic principles of it and develop the fundamental concepts of the model even further. This includes Elizabeth Simpson's interpretation of the psychomotor domain (which refers to the use of basic motor skills, coordination, and physical movement). The Psychomotor domain contains an extra two levels prior to the initial imitation or copy stage which were needed because Bloom's research group did not develop in-depth categories of this domain claiming lack of ...
