Remembering, Understanding, and Applying should be valued at 20% each, to hold the majority of the grade. These basic concepts are essential for all students and future employees to know. But whiles these 3 are the majority, it does not mean it is more important or that we should not incorporate analyzing, evaluating and creating. These last three require greater in-depth skill and understanding. Not all students or employees are capable to completely grasp or have the desire to hone this higher form of learning.
