The chain of interrogation goes on from there. There isn’t a certain ending point, because it can become a rabbit hole from which you never return. If you can answer something, answer it! If not, make a note that you need to shore up your understanding. Repeat the process and go deeper.

Remember that the overall point of elaborative interrogation is to make sure there are no holes in your understanding. If you can survive your own questioning, it’s likely you can survive tests, exams, and other people asking you to teach them. You can start with the journalistic questions (who, what, where, when, why, how), then move onto contextual questions (how did this happen, what happens after, what are the implications) for a thorough start.

The range of topics for which you can use elaborative interrogation is practically limitless. For example, math students can use it to break down advanced calculations and establish patterns that might help in higher-level math topics. If you’re studying human biology, you can use the technique to determine the specific conditions that lead to medical conditions like high cholesterol or heart arrhythmia. Even students of literature can use the technique to study motifs, trends, and themes in a particular author’s work. You can break down all the aspects of violin technique, such as why you must hold the bow a certain way, the role of rosin, and the role of different types of wood in different tones.

You should be able to see how this lets you know where you lack comprehension and facts. Having knowledge is of course important to learning, but sometimes not having blind spots is just as important.
