This engaging interactive provides simulations for learners to explore concepts in proteins, transcription, translation, protein folding, and mutations and provides space for learners to write short answer responses based on what they observe. There are also multiple-choice questions that provide immediate feedback. At the end of the module, you can “generate a report” which organizes all questions and responses on a single page which can then be printed out and, presumably, turned in as assessment. The entire module takes a suggested 45 minutes and is best suited for late middle or high school. You can see more such interactives at http://mw.concord.org/nextgen/#interactives
