Results of pre-lab and post-lab assessments for undergraduate and high school students. Overall, undergraduates scored higher on both pre and post-lab assessments. All students showed a substantial increase in their knowledge about the benefits of multicellularity (question 7). a High school students showed the most improvement in understanding the multiple origins of multicellularity (question 1) and cellular division of labor (question 2). b University of Minnesota undergraduates showed the largest increases in their understanding of multilevel selection (question 3) and biological individuality (question 8).
