The purpose of this handbook is to aid the introduction of open-ended questions as an instrument of assessment.
An open-ended question may be defined as one for which there is no fixed response. Many teachers already present open-ended questions verbally during lessons to establish the depth of understanding of students before continuing with a lesson.
