What is a reflective question?

Answer

A reflective question provides respondents with an opportunity to explore their knowledge, experiences and ideas. Reflective questions are thought-provoking and do not have one definite answer.

Reflective questions are intended to elicit thoughtful and personal responses. Respondents give consideration to their own unique experiences and values, which might not be shared by others. A reflective question has no right or wrong answer because respondents are to make connections between personal experiences and the topic.

For example, reflective questions might ask an audience to consider reasons for an event, look at the "big picture," describe a personal experience, interpret a situation or consider an alternate outcome. Answers differ according to individual differences in opinion, experience or skill.
