GE Council Green Belt Body of Knowledge ™

GE Council Green Belt Body of Knowledge ™  is central in design and development process of GE Council  Yellow Belt Certification Exam ™.  The exam items (i.e. questions) in GE Council  Green Belt Certification Exam ™ are aligned with one of the cognitive process dimensions of Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy. The cognitive process dimension represents a continuum of increasing cognitive complexityfrom remember to create. Anderson and Krathwohl identify 19 specific cognitive processes that further clarify the bounds of the six categories.

Following table provides details of cognitive processes dimension as categories, cognitive processes and alternative names
