About This Quiz & Worksheet

Microtubules and microfilaments are the central focus of these assessments. Concepts you will need to understand to do well in the quiz include the flagella and cytoskeleton.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

The quiz and worksheet measure your ability to:

  • Identify what makes up a flagella
  • Know the functions of the cytoskeleton
  • Distinguish which functions are not carried out by microtubules
  • Identify what are microfilaments composed of
  • Understand the characteristics of cytoskeleton components

Skills practiced

Some skills you can practice with these assessments are:

  • Reading comprehension - ensure that you draw the most important information from the related microtubules and microfilaments lesson
  • Distinguishing differences-compare and contrast topics such as what the cytoskeleton can and cannot do
  • Interpreting information - verify that you can read information regarding microtubule functions and interpret them correctly

Additional Learning

If you wish to learn more about microtubules and microfilaments, please read over the lesson called The Cytoskeleton: Microtubules and Microfilaments. Objectives this lesson covers are:

  • Define cytoskeleton
  • Know what cilia are
  • Understand the role intermediate fibers play in a cell
