Typology of Questions





Weight age


Remembering: Exhibit memory of previously learned material by recalling facts, terms, basic concepts, and answers. 

Understanding: Demonstrate understanding of facts and ideas by organizing, comparing, translating, interpreting, giving descriptions, and stating main ideas





Applying: Solve problems to new situations by applying acquired knowledge, facts, techniques and rules in a different way.






Analysing :

Examine and break information into parts by identifying motives or causes. Make inferences and find evidence to support generalizations



Present and defend opinions by making judgments about information, validity of ideas, or quality of work based on a set of criteria.



Compile  information together in a different way  by  combining elements in a new pattern or proposing alternative solutions
