SGO Resources (examples, DOK documents)Support Documents for Evaluating DOK LevelsIncreasing DOK levels do not indicate increasing Difficulty! They indicate increasing Complexity! And despite what the DOK wheel implies, DOK levels are not about verbs.
3 DOK Levels: ONE VERB
• DOK 1: Describe three characteristics of metamorphic rocks. (simple recall)
• DOK 2: Describe the difference between metamorphic and igneous rocks. (requires cognitive processing to determine the differences in the two rock types)
• DOK 3: Describe a model that you might use to represent the relationships that exist within the rock cycle. (requires deep understanding of rock cycle and a determination of how best to represent it)Presentation from the GED Testing Service about DOK levelsWebb's Depth of Knowledge: Transitioning to the 2014 GED Test (Highly Recommended Reading)Publications from The National Center for the Improvement of Educational Assessment, Inc.
