    Intel Teach Live- August 2014- Digging Deeper with Webb's Depth of Knowledge (DOK) and Technology



      Click here to watch the video of this webinar.


      For the Depth of Knowledge Chart (DOK) there are four Levels of Complexity which measure a student’s Depth of Knowledge. In 1997, Webb  developed a process and criteria for systematically analyzing the alignment between standards and standardized assessment. The model is based upon the assumption that curricular elements may all be categorized based upon the cognitive demands required to produce an acceptable response. Each grouping of tasks reflects a different level of cognitive expectation, or depth of knowledge, required to complete the task.

      The following  reflects an adapted version of the model.

      1 Recall and Reproduction

      2 Skills and Concepts

      3 Short-term Strategic Thinking

      4 Extended Thinking

      How do you determine if a student is reaching a certain level of understanding?  What digital tools do you use to measure their depth of knowledge? Have you used DOK before? What are some pros and cons of using this model?
