Embedded in the lower-left corner of every term page in the Talking Glossary of Genetic Terms is a self-check tool called Test Your Gene Knowledge.
This interactive application opens with a choice of testing your skills on ten randomly chosen terms you would hear in the news, or in a classroom. Classroom terms are taken from the most commonly used high school biology texts. All terms are contained in the Talking Glossary of Genetic Terms where they are explained by leading experts in the field on single pages dedicated to each term and supported by animations, illustrations, and linked resources.
Once completed, the quiz offers the student a certificate that allows input of their name and automatically scores the number of correct answers. Missed answers are linked to term pages for further exploration. Hints are offered for each term.
Use it as a fun learning tool in real time with your class. Offer it as extra credit with printed proof from the completion certificate.
Test Your Gene Knowledge is available in the Spanish and English editions of the online Talking Glossary, as well as in the iPad/iPhone app version.
