This paper discusses the design and pedagogy underpinning the use of online quiz items in which students are presented with a range of questions designed to enhance understanding of complex linguistic constructions. It explores the design of different types of quiz question from the perspective of pedagogy and design of question types. The particular types of questions presented in this learning setting demonstrate a formative approach to assessment, closely integrated with learning processes. A matrix of questions is presented using Bloom's taxonomy showing the type of question, pedagogical underpinnings and cognitive skills required. The implication of the paper is that quiz type questions do not necessarily imply a narrow focus on recall, but can be designed to assess a range of learning processes.
