Bloom's Taxonomy is difficult to apply consistently to assessment tasks in introductory programming courses. The Bloom taxonomy is a valuable tool that could enable analysis and discussion of programming assessment if it could be interpreted consistently. We discuss each of the Bloom classification categories and provide a consistent interpretation with concrete exemplars that will allow computer science educators to utilise Bloom's Taxonomy for programming assessment. Using Bloom's Taxonomy to help design examinations could greatly improve the quality of assessment in introductory programming courses.
