This study analyzes the 2015 revised curriculum Physics I achievement standards and the learning objectives presented in the five physics I textbooks in accordance with Bloom's revised taxonomy. The results of the achievement standards analysis showed that conceptual knowledge accounted for the largest share of knowledge at the knowledge level, followed by factual knowledge and procedural knowledge. Analysis of cognitive processes showed the highest level of comprehension. For particular understanding, explanation was most often used. The results of the textbook learning objective analysis also showed a tendency similar to that of the achievement criteria analysis. Conceptual and factual knowledge was shown to be the most presented, and in terms of cognitive processes, many were presented in the order of understanding and application. Achievement standards and learning objectives are very important in setting the direction of the teaching-learning process. Thus, in the future design of physics I achievement standards and learning objectives, consideration will need to be given to various knowledge levels and cognitive processes.
