This is a test that I use in conjunction with my food chain project to assess students at the end of our You Are What You Eat: Food Chain and Environments Unit. This test addresses the following "I Can" statements:
-I can describe the role of producers in the food chain in regards to the transfer of energy.
-I can explain the importance of plants to a food chain.
-I can organize a simple food chain or web and recognize the roles of each organism.
-I can summarize that organisms can only survive in an environment in which their needs are met.
-I can describe and support that an organism's behavior depends on various qualities of the ecosystem.
-I can determine how all organisms cause changes in their ecosystems that are either
beneficial, neutral or detrimental.
-I can describe the characteristics of many ecosystems.
This assessment includes questions asked in a variety of ways including multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank and short answer. The questions are challenging and give students the opportunity to think critically about the content.
An answer key and rubric are included in the assessment.
