Diagnostic Questions

Diagnostic Questions are a quick and accurate way of assessing your students’ knowledge and understanding of a key skill or concept, identifying fundamental misconceptions that they may have. In short, they provide meaningful Assessment for Learning (AfL).

Colleagues writing diagnostic questions together can also benefit significantly in developing their understanding of how students learn a particular topic, aiding their planning and delivery of lessons. In addition, students‘ understanding of a topic and their higher order thinking skills can be pushed to the limit by challenging them to create their own Diagnostic Questions.
