The purpose of this paper is to present the steps of planning and monitoring a teaching-learning process proposed for a basic nutrition course offered to health students enrolled at a Public University in Brazil. The theoretical framework discusses the fundamentals of Bloom's Taxonomy reviewed by Anderson and colleagues (2001) that outline how to establish, organize and classify educational objectives for the cognitive domain. Then, the paper describes the methodology to implement this process in a real learning environment, with a great focus in the construction and validation of a learning assessment. Finally, some recommendations are made regarding the management of the teaching and learning process in undergraduate courses.
