There are several types of questions you can ask to test vocabulary. I will give you some examples on the different types of questions you can ask. You can choose either to use multiple choice questions or fill in the blanks.
Show word and choose the right meaning of that word
This is the most obvious question. Learners have to be able to read, otherwise they wouldn’t understand anything of course.
Show word and find the image that that word resembles
This is a type of questions which is good to use with concrete words. A more abstract word, like “wisdom”, may be difficult to show on an image.
Show image and choose the word that fits with that image
Again, this is a question that is better to use with concrete words. Furthermore learners have to interpret the image the right way.
Audio and choose the right image/word
This could be a solution to test the vocabulary of younger children. Children can listen to the word that is being said and choose the right image that belongs to the audio. You have to make sure that children understand the instruction. Sometimes children don’t understand the instruction and just click on some images.
Synonyms and contradictions
This type of questions requires more knowledge of learners. First they have to understand the meaning of a word and then they have to know the synonym or contradiction of that word.
