Thursday test study guide:
3/26 – Tuesday – HW: Due tomorrow!
1.  Please write 3 questions in the topic of cell communication/ immunity on the google doc that I have shared.  Use you textbook, videos, lectures, or the AP Biology curriculum below to help build these questions.
When you build a question you must first think of the concepts that you want to test the student’s  understanding. I have posted a small part of the AP Curriculum on the topic of Cell to cell communication and Immunity.  Use this as guide to help understand what students must know.  Please understand that the questions that you write are critical thinking questions and not on basic knowledge.  Your questions should be constructed with the idea that you are testing BIG Picture ideas and concepts and NOT JUST FACTS.
2.  Each question must have well thought out distractors (wrong choices).
3.  After each question you must explain your correct choice and distractors.
A very good multiple choice question takes a lot of effort.  You must must make distracters as wrong choices.
Distracters are wrong choices that like fishing “get bites” because they are tempting to those that do NOT completely understand the topic:
A good distracter is
     a)  is one that is correct in its concepts or principle but does not apply to your question.
     b)  is one that mentions a correct principle but uses it incorrectly.
     c)  is one that uses a choice that is too vague or simple. This may be correct but it will not be the best     
          choice as the correct choice will be better. What I mean here is that you should have 2 correct choices     
          where one choice (not the distracter) is a better choice of the two.
     d) is a choice that is correct in SOME of the steps of a multiple step problem.
Bottom line is that you need to create educated wrong choices for the students to choose and distract from the correct choice.
Here is an example:

2. The vertebrate forelimb initially develops in the embryo as a solid mass of tissue. As development progresses, the solid mass near the end of the forelimb is remodeled into individual digits.Which of the following best explains the role of apoptosis in remodeling of the forelimb?

            (A) Apoptosis replaces old cells with new ones that are less likely to contain mutations.

            (B) Apoptosis involves the regulated activation of proteins in specific cells of the developing                       forelimb that leads to the death of those cells.

            (C) Apoptosis involves the destruction of extra cells in the developing forelimb, which                                  provides nutrients for phagocytic cells.

            (D) Apoptosis in the developing forelimb triggers the differentiation of cells whose fate                                 was not already determined.

What are the distractors?
