Questions posing is a powerful tool in all segments of the teaching process: in tuition, in instructions, as well as in the process of evaluation and assessment of students’ achievements. Well formulated question greatly activate students’ intellectual capacities regardless of their age i.e. their level of education. The higher level questions rouse the critical thinking, the problem solving activities, the independent information search, and the higher cognitive process development. They are more desirable than those which require a simple yes/no answer only, (though these also have significance in certain teaching situations). The objective of this article is to point out the importance of posing questions when teaching which would certainly lead towards thinking process activation and development of the critical one but it also aims at highlighting the teacher’s role when posing these questions and at analyzing the type of questions that are being most frequently posed in the process of teaching and assessment. We would also like to bring up the issue of training the students to ask questions when learning and being taught and when self-assessing as well as to analyze the type of questions they most frequently pose.
