Abstract

The analysis of application of Bloom's Taxonomy in the future teachers’ preparation of Pakistan is the aim of this study where gender differences, program differences and semester effects are considered. The researchers developed questionnaire and examined the data using IBM SPSS statistics software. The results point to the fact that female participants are more likely than men to display mastery of lower-level skills as defined by Bloom's taxonomy, such as "remembering" and "understanding, and males tend to excel at thinking critically and analytically, i.e. "analyzing" and "evaluating" according to Bloom's taxonomy. On the other hand, the students of the first, second and third years of the Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) program were found to be scoring higher than M.Phil. participants. Additionally, freshman students were shown to have stronger achievements at the earlier levels of Bloom's Taxonomy compared to later-year students. These inferences, therefore, indicate the necessity of personalized educational strategies as well as staff development programs to raise the standards of education in Pakistani schools
