Jean Edwards asked the group to consider whether they agreed with the "revised' placement of Creative Thinking at the top of the hierarchy. Do artists for example, need to ASSESS or EVALUATE their work - decide when to stop, when the work needs changes, etc? It's for this reason that many many people actually prefer the original Bloom's hierarchy (but do like the new wording using verbs instead of nouns - so Understand rather then just Comprehension, for instance).
Our group thinks there is a circular motion rather than a straight hierarchy, so people constantly move from the top of the pyramid to other stages, as they work through the thinking process.
