Abstract. The main objective of this study is to design a questionnaire which helps to measure the constructive alignment of Blooms taxonomy as per the six level of cognition. To achieve the objective, questionnaire was designed. This questionnaire will be helpful in ascertaining the present level of respondent as per the blooms taxonomy so that corrective actions could be taken to optimize learning outcomes. In Indian higher education, especially in Tier 2 and Tier 3 colleges are more heavily biased towards lower order thinking skills. With this questionnaire, current standing of the respondent can be measured and progression to higher order thinking skills can be facilitated at the end of the trainer/educator, hence bridging the gap between academia and industry.
