A classification of questions from Irish and Turkish high-stakes examinations
Aysel, Tugba; O'Shea, Ann; Breen, Sinead
In both Turkey and Ireland entrance to third level education is determined by performance on a high-stakes examination at the end of second level education. However, the examination systems in Ireland and Turkey are quite different from each other. In order to compare the examinations we attempted to classify the types of questions asked in 2009 and 2010. We used various classification systems including the Levels of Cognitive Demand Framework developed by the QUASAR Project (Smith & Stein 1998). We will report on the use of these frameworks and the results obtained for the Turkish and Irish mathematics examinations.
