A fishy way to discuss multiple genes affecting the same trait.

Smith M - PLoS Biol. (2012)

Bottom Line: Developing interactive ways to teach about concepts such as complementation can be difficult.This approach, supported by learning data, uses blind cavefish as an example.

pbio-1001279-g010: Exam question on complementation.The correct answer is marked in bold font.

Mentions: Summative assessment of student learning Several different measures suggest students learn about complementation. First, students were given a complementation question on the exam similar to the difficult homework question (Figure 10) and 88% of the students answered correctly. Second, I gave the Genetics Concept Assessment (GCA) [11] the first day of the class and put the identical questions on the final exam. One question on this assessment asks about complementation (Figure 11). On the pretest, only 44% of the students answer this question correctly, but on the posttest 93% of the students answer this question correctly.
