This research was conducted to know the types of questions applied by the students, the most dominant questions used based on the cognitive domains of Bloom’s taxonomy, and the students’ responses towards the questions. Descriptive qualitative research design was applied in the research. The subject of the study were the sixth semester students who took Research on ELT course. To collect the data, observation using Telegram application and interview were applied. The data were analyzed qualitatively to determine the cognitive level of each question according to revised Bloom’s taxonomy.
