Higher Order Thinking Questions: by Jamie Speer
Knowledge (repeats information verbatim)- students learn scientific name of green iguana is Iguana iguana, are able to recite this when

asked Comprehension ( restates in own words)- teacher asks one student to describe class reptilia to team member, student says "iguanas are in the reptile class" Application (understands connections)- students are able to understand that a snake is related to an iguana because they are both under class reptilia and cold blooded, using common knowledge. Analysis- (understanding organizational relationships)- Student can understand that a "phylum " is smaller than a "kingdom" by evaluating database organisational hierarchy. Synthesis- (combining information to form a unique product)- students are able to write a response to the question "how would you categorize a bearded dragon" using the database and previous questions as a reference (they understand that a snake, iguana, and bearded dragon are all reptiles). Evaluation (explain)- Compare and contrast how a human is related to a reptile, forces learner to understand that they both a vertebrates, however, forces higher thinking to understand humans are mammals and vary somewhat from reptiles.

Data seems accurate, most information needed is present. However, accuracy is based on the creator- margin for human error Records seem complete, plenty of examples included. However, databases are limited by its creatornot all records and examples could possibly be included Includes a “Questions Archive” – Higher order questions created by educators for educators
