Designing Questioning Strategies: Applying Bloom's Taxonomy to Online Computer Programming Courses

E. Shneider and O. Gladkikh (New Zealand)


Testing and evaluation, questioning strategies, and Bloom’s taxonomy.


Testing students within a formal education system represents a control structure that ensures a degree of accomplishment through the educational process and is thus a vital element in the development of high quality education programs. The main objective of the research project described in this paper was to combine modern pedagogical ideas and principles with the course philosophy to develop general questioning strategies, apply them to particular courses and develop problem templates useful at different levels of student assessment. This research aims to significantly improve and simplify the process of course design and, in particular, assessment design. It will also prepare a solid platform for developing computerised assessment systems for secondary and tertiary education.
