For your consideration....
...may I recommend the specificities of the Cognitive Domain phases. The
general and specific descriptors found in the levels, instructional
descriptors, and terminology for specific learning outcome, may assist
you greatly in your design and story boarding plan analysis.
I have used this premise in the past as a textbook editor and reviewer.
It meets almost every level I can think of: knowledge, comprehension,
application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. Your local book store
or library should be able to assist you with books related to this area
of educational writing. Hope this helps. I use it as a SME source for
those wonderfully flavored verb-object statements for directions. It
(C.D.) lists the correct verb for the correct action....no assumptions
here....even corrects SMEs too! Then the messenger (you) does not die in
the writing process, or even worse have your picture on the the bullseye
ring of the SME's dart board.
