This pilot study sought to determine instructor's cognitive level of teaching, student's cognitive level of achievement, and factors related to student cognitive achievement in three undergraduate College of Agriculture courses. All student and two instructor variables were assessed by survey instruments. The cognitive level of tests and assignments, cognitive level of teaching, and the cognitive level of achievement were evaluated using the Florida Taxonomy of Cognitive Behavior. All instructors were found to be teaching at a low cognitive level. Student cognitive achievement was most closely related to the cognitive level of tests and assignments.
