Depth of knowledge clarifies and considers the cognitive demand of learning expectations. That demand can vary based on the following:
Webb's D.O.K. Levels describe four different ways students can understand and interact with concepts and content. The DOK levels code learning expectations based on the complexity of the text or topic and the task.
Learn what exactly is depth of knowledge, why the D.O.K. Wheel is inaccurate, and how to use Webb's D.O.K. Levels to determine the depth and extent students must transfer, use, and share their learning.
Learn how to determine and designate the depth of knowledge of the performance objectives of grade level expectations and assessments using the ABCDs of D.O.K. - audience, behavior, conditions, and demand.
Learn how to deconstruct and rephrase the performance objectives of academic standards and learning targets into good questions that will engage and encourage students to demonstrate and communicate different levels of depth of knowledge (D.O.K.).
Learn what distinguishes Webb's Depth of Knowledge Levels from Bloom's Revised Taxonomy and how both can be superimposed to measure the cognitive rigor of learning expectations and experiences.
Learn how to use Webb's Depth of Knowledge (D.O.K.) Levels to determine how deeply and extensively standards, learning activities, and assessments expect students to demonstrate and communicate their learning.
Learn how teaching and learning experiences for depth of knowledge are similar to Jeopardy! and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? (D.O.K.-1), The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross and 30 Minute Meals with Rachael Ray (D.O.K.-2), Top Chef (D.O.K.-3), and Shark Tank (D.O.K.-4).
