This lesson is intended as a way to check for student understanding regarding the content presented in the previous lesson of this unit. The assessment takes place in two parts: a written assessment of content-related vocabulary and concepts as well as a hands-on section intended to discern whether they can correctly use a multimeter. Each of these assessments focuses on their understanding of units and their application to circuitry. By requiring students pass this section before moving forward, it ensures that they can efficiently collect data independently in the remaining sections of this unit as well as increase the longevity of the equipment used in this process.
