Crafting an appropriately challenging test for AP Biology takes a lot of time! This test resource will save you that time!!
This set includes a study guide (set of objectives) for Chapters 6 and 7 from the Campbell Biology textbook (10th ed.), covering content on cells and the plasma membrane. There is a multiple choice test and a free response test for those chapters. These materials were designed using a combination of original questions and test banks (Campbell and past AP questions). The documents are editable! Answer keys are included for both of the tests!
I teach AP Biology. My testing procedure (I have short periods) is to give the test over two days - the multiple choice portion on one day and the free response portion on the following day. I typically treated both sections as one test and took it all out of 100 points (deducting for errors and not being concerned with whether or not you could truly "count" 100 points).
The study guides could be used for individual studying and test preparation, or could be used in a class activity. I have tried having students partner up to work on a question and I give them 3 minutes to answer that question and quiz each other, and then the partners rotate. Sometimes I have had the students prepare a set of notecards - one card per objective. Another idea is to pass out the guide at the beginning, and have students complete it as you address each part in class. Lots of options!
