The types of questions are:    

  • Literal: You are required to recognise or recall information based on the words and/or images in a text.
  • Inferential: This is generally referred to as reading between the lines. You have to uncover the meaning of words and/or images. This involves identifying the key messages or ideas and discovering the relationships that are formed through facts, ideas. You need to be able to appreciate the overall meaning of a text and consider how and why you are being positioned to respond to a text.
  • Evaluation: You are required to make judgements based on the facts and information provided.
  • Creative: Based on the information in the text, be able to make predictions or demonstrate deeper insights.
