This listing features three homework quizzes about mitosis and meiosis, version A, version B, and a modified version A for students with learning disabilities. Our school district experienced a paradigm shift in 2019, where the formative homework assignments no longer counted toward the course grade. Only the assessments factored, and teachers suddenly had to have multiple versions of each one available for student retakes. I spent the majority of my non-instructional professional time writing tests that year! If the administration in your school district is making a similar change and you suddenly find out during in-service a week before school starts about all of the additional assessments you need, perhaps this bundled set of resources will help!
All three versions of this cell division quiz are worth forty points. They each have five sections – short answer, compare and contrast sketch and label, I see what does not belong, multiple-choice, and matching.
- In the short answer section, students will outline three primary reasons why multicellular eukaryotic organisms need mitosis. They also will sequence the order of the phases from a scrambled up list.
- Students will sketch and label fundamental structures in metaphase and metaphase I or prophase and prophase I in the compare and contrast section.
- Students will circle the term out of place in each row in the “I See What Does Not Belong” section. Then they will write the theme of the three remaining words on the line for quiz versions A and B.
- Students will further differentiate the processes in the multiple-choice section.
- Students will interpret several descriptions, and write “Mi” if the statement describes mitosis and “Me” if it matches with meiosis.
I published this bundled set of assessments as PDF files. They will become editable upon conversion to Microsoft Word using an Adobe Acrobat Reader DC app.
All three quizzes come with a full-page key with the answers in bold, red font. I edited all three with the premium version of Grammarly. This compilation is thirteen pages with the cover page.
This listing complements the worksheet I published about cell division.
