Ever read a book, studied a topic, or simply worked on a problem set? Then you are performing an activity in an effort to achieve some level of comprehension. For most of us, this happens every day and quite a bit during our time in school.

But comprehension is more than just ‘yes, I understand’ and ‘no, I don’t understand.’

There are a couple more levels that are simply explained by this fantastic graphic from Education to the Core. It is simple but effective. Basically, the visual explains the multiple levels of understanding in very simple terms.

Next time you’re trying to learn something, remember this chart. Evaluate your comprehension and understanding using this as a guide and it may help you try just a little bit harder. Good luck!
