In the current study, it was aimed to determine the opinions of primary school class
teachers about their question asking skill, questioning strategies and the question types
they use. The study employed the survey model, one of the qualitative research methods.
In line with the purpose of the study, interviews were conducted with 52 primary school
class teachers working in state and private schools in the Büyükçekmece district of the
city of İstanbul. The data collected with a semi-structured interview form were analyzed
by using the descriptive and content analysis methods. According to the results of the
study, it was concluded that while determining the purposes of the questions they ask,
the primary school class teachers mostly focus on evaluation, that the types of questions
they use do not go beyond measuring the information possessed by students, that they
think that the main advantage of asking questions is receiving feedbacks, that they think
that knowing question asking strategies enables the teacher to improve the quality in
education and that they think that the questions asked should be in compliance with the
subjects and objectives. In light of these findings, it can be suggested that seminars and
in-service training about question asking strategies should be given to teachers.
