Transcript of Question types

What is the point of questioning?
Gather information
think more deeply on a subject
evaluate a process
develop a new concept
5th type
Combinations - this is simply what the name implies, so these are a combination of a few of the different types.
5 Basic question types
1. Factual - These usually have a right or wrong answer and draw on material read.

Example: What was the name of Macbeth's Castle?
2nd type of question
Convergent – These have a range of accuracy and are most likely how you have been tested up until recently. These questions use comprehension, application, analysis, inferences or conjectures based on personal awareness, or on material read, presented or known.
3rd type of question
Divergent – These questions allow us to explore different avenues and create variations and alternative answers or scenarios. Correctness may be based on logical projections, may be contextual, or arrived at through basic knowledge, conjecture, inference, projection, creation, intuition, or imagination. These types require us to analyze, evaluate, or synthesize a knowledge base and then project or predict different outcomes.
4th question type
Evaluative - These are a little more sophisticated and cause us to delve deeper. To answer these, we would have to analyze and blend or synthesize differing view points and ideas to create a new conclusion. We may have to draw on several resources or prior knowledge.

Example: Compare and contrast the quests of Ishmael and Macbeth?
Now that you have seen the different question types, you are being assigned 3 chapters on which to work. I want you to create 5-8 questions that would be level 3, 4, or 5 questions for each of your assigned chapters.
