This article explores application of a taxonomic approach in legal research pedagogy to outcomes assessment based on Prof. Paul Callister’s adaptation of Bloom’s Taxonomy of Educational Objectives which integrates instructional design and learning activities compatible with formative assessment during the learning process and summative assessment at its conclusion. It reviews the development of outcomes assessment initiatives by legal educators and the development of outcomes assessment standards by the American Bar Association for the accreditation of law schools.
