Creating is viewed as the highest order of thinking in Anderson’s & Krathwohl’s Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy. High capacity students will be creative learners who have a knack at thinking around a problem. They may not always get the correct answer but they ‘see’ angles others don’t. Lower level learners will be those who really rely on structure – and don’t like to think outside the box. The lower rated students may be very good at remembering things and therefore might even be considered ‘smart’, but they may not be ‘clever’. The creative students will be those who can apply new and successful strategies.
