SOLO Taxonomy

What is SOLO Taxonomy?

Since September 2017, pupils in Nursery-Year 6 have used SOLO Taxonomy in their learning. SOLO (Structure of the Observed Learning Outcome) Taxonomy is a model of learning that is split into five levels of understanding. Each level has a name, a symbol and an action.

At first we pick up only one or few aspects of the task (unistructural), then several aspects that are unrelated (multistructural), then we learn how to integrate them into a whole (relational), and finally, we are able to generalise that whole to a new topic or area (extended abstract).

Name Symbol Action Description Example: What did you learn from reading the article about the food we eat?

Prestructural

    When topics are unknown, learners start at a prestructural level. Learners have not yet grasped the idea or may need help to start.

We eat food.

Unistructural

    When learners have one relevant idea, they are at a unistructural level. Learners pick up one aspect of the task and their understanding is disconnected and limited.

The food we eat comes from plants and animals.

Multistructural

    When learners have several relevant ideas, they are at a multistructural level. They know several aspects of the task but have not made any connections between them. The food we eat comes from plants and animals. These plants and animals are mostly raised on farms or grown in gardens. It can take some time before the plants and animals are ready to eat.

Relational

   

When learners are able to link ideas, they are at a relational level. They develop a deeper understanding by making connections.

The food we eat comes from plants and animals because they are the source of the essential nutrients required for life and health. These plants and animals are mostly raised on farms or grown in gardens because agriculture enables greater produce to meet the needs of large populations better than hunting or gathering. It can take some time before the plants and animals are ready to eat as it takes a long time to grow a seed into a wheat plant ready to be harvested, processed, made into bread and transported to a supermarket.

Extended Abstract     When learners are able to take the related ideas and extend them, they are at an extended abstract level. Learners can use their understanding at the relational level to generalise, predict, evaluate or create new understanding.

After reading the article, I think the food we eat in the future will be very different from what we eat today. This is because a greater concern for the impact of our diets on our planet will lead to us eating more unprocessed foods, less meat and more plants. My evidence for this claim is that more young people are choosing their food for the health of the planet rather than choosing it to follow a family tradition.
