There are five basic types of questions:
Factual; Convergent; Divergent; Evaluative; and Combination
Factual - Soliciting reasonably simple, straight forward answers based on obvious facts or awareness. These are usually at the lowest level of cognitive or affective processes and answers are frequently either right or wrong.
Ex . Who is the discoverer of the gravity ?
Convergent : it has only one answer , Ex: What is the capital of Palestine? , Jerusalem
Divergent : different answers are accepted , Ex: what is your favourite teacher ... My favourite teacher is Waleed , Ahmed etc ...
Combinations - These are questions that blend any combination of the above.
Ex : What is your favourite teacher and why do you like him ?
Evaluative - These types of questions usually require sophisticated levels of cognitive and/or emotional judgment. In attempting to answer evaluative questions, students may be combining multiple logical and/or affective thinking process, or comparative frameworks. Often an answer is analyzed at multiple levels and from different perspectives before the answerer arrives at newly synthesized information or conclusions.
EX : What are the similarities and differences between CLT and Audio-lingual apporach ?
