Open-ended questions do not have a fixed answer and encourage students to use their creativity and critical thinking skills. Use open-ended questions in your assessments to encourage students to think deeply, express their ideas, and explore different perspectives.
"What do you think the author is trying to say in this passage?"
"How do you think this character is feeling?"
"How would you have worked through this challenge?"
"How would you solve this problem?"
"What do you think are possible solutions?"
"Why do you think this happened?"
"What are some challenges you might face in the future with regard to this issue?"
How do you think this concept relates to your own experiences?"
Open-ended questions are an effective tool to promote student engagement, critical thinking, and learning. They help students develop their ability to express their ideas clearly and support their ideas with evidence and reasoning.

Use Quizizz to create open-ended questions and provide a text-box for your students to type their responses.
This encourages students to share their thoughts and experiences in their own words and empowers you to assess their understanding in a more flexible way.
You can also customize your grade for an open-ended question based on your students’ level of understanding as depicted by their answers.
