Genetics Unit Test for Grades 8-12
This is the final assessment (unit test) on my 2 week unit on genetics. My genetics PowerPoint and Notes can be viewed here.
This test was written for a typical Biology I class. The test includes fill in the blank, multiple choice and quite a few problems to be worked out. The fill in the blank and multiple choice questions cover the basic genetics vocabulary, such as homozygous, heterozygous, genotype, dominant recessive, phenotype, etc. There are several questions on Mendel, his work and his laws of genetics. Students are required to determine the genotypes of the parents, fill in the Punnett square, and answer several questions about each problem.

This test has a total of 83 questions. There are 11 fill in the blank questions, 18 multiple choice, one dihybrid problem with 8 questions, 2 incomplete dominance problems with 9 questions, 3 problems that require students to determine the genotype of the parents based on the types of offspring present, one pedigree table with 14 questions, 2 codominance problems (blood types) with 12 questions, and one sex linked problem with 8 questions.
All answers and solutions to problems are included.
The test is edible for your students.
This test works nicely with our 70 minute class period. It can easily be shortened to fit your class period. Your download will include two versions: a pdf version and a Word document.
