    I supervise a lot of these. You should find plenty of studies already done on higher order questioning. For your study you need to consider what you are contributing to the body of knowledge.

    So how will you grade questions? Look at how others have done this. Some people are criticising higher order questions and using CLT with Hirsch to say they are not as superior as they once were. Not criticisms in your lit review Rowe).
    How will you deliver these questions? Teacher led. Peer to peer. Wait time. There are quite a few permutations.
    How will you capture the thinking that pupils have done? Scheduled observation? MP3s and categorisation? Semi structured interviews?

    Then there is interpretation of results. Bring the lit review back and see if what you found tallies or not.

    Hope some of that helps.
