Gamification techniques have demonstrated that students improve their learning process through mobile applications. However, every teacher creates his/her own questions for the game design, involving classroom response systems through a digital app such as Kahoot!, Socrative, Blicker, Clickers, Plickers, etc., without previous planning of the difficulty in every question formulated to the students. This work focuses on the evaluation design of a questionnaire for the final test of the Power Electronics subject, following Bloom’s Taxonomy methodology for every level of critical thinking within the cognitive domain of the learning process for students. Furthermore, an analysis of the V-Aiken for the reliability and validity of each question were taken into account. The final test implementation was carried out at Centro Universitario de Tonala, Jalisco, Mexico, involving nine students of the Energy Engineering grade of the fifth semester. The results show an analysis of the performance of the students when applying a designed test based on revised Bloom Taxonomy. It was better because the student demonstrates, in a more integral way, his/her mastery skill in different topics of the subject, while the results of the not-designed exam showed a poor student performance because all of their knowledge and skills are not evaluated when it is not applied a proper effective question.
