Key for the table above: Psychomotor: P1 (Low), P2 (Medium), P3 (High), Affective: A1 (Low), A2 (Medium), A3 (High), Cognitive: C1 (Low), C2 (Medium), C3 (High) The cognitive domain involves knowledge and the development of intellectual skills. This includes the recall or recognition of specific facts, procedural patterns, and concepts that serve in the development of intellectual abilities and skills.

Eng1081 Physics for Engineering Unit Guide

The affective domain includes the attitudes with which someone deals with things emotionally, such as feelings, values, appreciation, enthusiasms and motivations. The psychomotor domain includes physical movement, coordination, and use of the motor-skill areas. Development of these skills requires practice and is measured in terms of speed, precision, distance, procedures, or techniques in execution.
