Extended learning questions cannot
be answered by simply looking in the text of a Web site. Instead these questions
instruct students to comprehend, apply, analyze, and evaluate what they’ve
learned. This type of questioning makes students consider the content of their
assignment, and helps them to explore different aspects, while simultaneously
inspiring individual creative thought processes.
