This worksheet and quiz focus on and test you about the position, definition and purpose served by the basal lamina. You will answer questions about where this tissue is found, what it does and its composition.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

The quiz will test you on the following:

  • Which layer of tissue lies just under the basal lamina
  • The primary function of the fluid secreted by the basal lamina
  • How the basal lamina might be involved in embryonic development

Skills Practiced

  • Knowledge application - use your knowledge of basal lamina to determine where it might interact with endothelium
  • Interpreting information - verify that you can read information about the layers nearest the basal lamina and interpret it correctly
  • Information recall - access the knowledge you've gained regarding the layer of tissue from which a gel is actually secreted
