This genetics quiz covers the topics of reproduction, DNA, DNA fingerprinting, chromosomes, and karyotypes. Students must know the basics of DNA (such as A-T and C-G) while also understanding how to match the DNA fingerprint of a suspect to evidence at a crime scene. On the quiz, I included a Venn Diagram to compare and contrast sexual and asexual reproduction. Lastly, I have a diagram of a karyotype in which students will be asked questions to test their knowledge of chromosomes. Students should be able to determine whether a karyotype is male or female (XX vs. XY) as well as identifying that there is an extra chromosome on pair 9.
I use this quiz as a pop quiz with my students, but this also would work as a classwork assignment or homework assignment. The quiz is formatted in Word so items can easily be edited to fit the needs of your students. An answer key is also included for easy grading. Thanks!
