About This Quiz & Worksheet

This quiz and worksheet combo will help you to test your understanding of the atomic characteristics that make certain substances good conductors and, conversely, good insulators. These practice questions will test you on the properties of conductors and insulators, as well as the process of transferring electrical energy.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

In these natural science assessments, you'll be tested on electricity, including:

  • Your understanding of free electrons and their role in conductivity
  • The characteristics of insulators and conductors
  • Your understanding of conductivity

Skills Practiced

This quiz and worksheet will allow you to test your skills in the following areas:

  • Reading comprehension - ensure that you draw the most important information on conductors, insulators, and the transfer of electrical energy from the related lesson
  • Making connections - use your understanding of the process of free electron transfer between atoms to better grasp the characteristics that make certain substances good insulators or conductors
  • Critical thinking - apply relevant concepts to examine information about conductivity in a different light

Additional Learning

To learn more about the substances that conduct electricity and ones that do not, you can view the lesson titled Insulators and Conductors: Examples, Definitions & Qualities. This lesson will enable you to:

  • Define and differentiate between conductors and insulators
  • Define and explain free electrons and their role in conductivity
  • Understand how the measure of a substance's conductivity dictates its role as a conductor or insulator
