This four-page exam of the sensory system for Human Anatomy and Physiology is divided into six sections – multiple choice, true/false (correct the underlined word if the statement is false), two short answer sections, draw and label, and matching. This test comprehensively covers the general (somatic) senses, the special senses, the classes of receptors, physiological pathways from stimulus to the brain, disorders/conditions of the eye [conjunctivitis, strabismus, cataracts, keratitis, myopia, detached retina, hyperopia, retinopathy, macular degeneration, glaucoma, astigmatism, and lacerated cornea], accessory organs of the eye, activation of pain receptors, accommodation, cerumen production, physiological pathways of light through the eye, physiological pathways of sound through the ear, anatomy of the eye, anatomy of the ear, location and function of mechanoreceptors, chemoreceptors, pain receptors (nociceptors), proprioceptors, thermoreceptors, and photoreceptors.
There is a total of eleven multiple choice questions, fifteen true/false questions, five short answer questions, twenty-one descriptions of eye conditions to classify, one section to sketch and label cross-section of the eye, and one section for students to label the cross-section image of the ear.
This exam could be used as a summative study guide if the point valuation for the questions in each section are adjusted on this editable document. A four-page colored answer key is provided.
