Get kids THINKING! This is more than a "definition style" exam! There are simple diagrams to analyze, and the questions mimic how standards-based standardized tests generally ask about this topic. This middle school-level test covers the basics of classification, including "big picture" ideas versus small details. Topics include the basics of scientific names, major examples and characteristics of organisms in each domain (mostly focused on animal, plant, fungi, and protist), being able to interpret simple dichotomous keys, and a basic understanding of how the classification system works.
This test includes 30 multiple choice questions, with several questions that include analysis of tables, charts, or simple dichotomous keys. There is 1 open response question.
Less copies and easy to correct - save time with our test packet format! The test is 6 pages long (3 front/back) with an additional 1-sided answer sheet. You only have to make one class set of test question packets and then reuse them class to class, as it is only necessary for the students to write on their answer sheet.
