Abstract: This paper describes a web-based interactive tutorial that enables computer science tutors and lecturers to practice applying the Bloom Taxonomy in classifying programming exam questions. The structure, design and content of the tutorial are described in detail. The results of an evaluation with ten participants highlight important problem areas in the application of Bloom to programming assessments. The key contributions are the content and design of this tutorial and the insights derived from its evaluation. These are important results in continued work on methods of measuring learning progression in programming fundamentals.
