Keywords:Critical Thinking, Instructional Evaluation, Chemistry, Examination, Cognitive Skills
In this paper attempt is made to investigate summative examination questions of grade 11 according to cognitive complexity. Total 12 senior secondary schools grade 11 question papers of the academic year 2018-19 end exams are considered in the present study. Total 384 questions are asked. In the present study conducted - theory based content analysis and qualitative methodology is employed by using revised Bloom’s taxonomy of cognitive objectives. Higher order thinking, middle order thinking and lower order thinking skills based questions are structured. The present research is guided by research question “What kind of cognitive skills and knowledge do grade 11 examination questions require?” Result of the study reveals that year end examinations are demanding. 52% questions are from higher order cognitive skills. Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy is used for designing the assessment tool. The two higher order thinking skills categories should be more evenly present in the exam.
