While the expectations of the modern education system are expanding, effective methods ofassessing student knowledge have become outdated. There is a need for active learning methods and applications in which students can utilize critical thinking and develop inquiry skills for solving science problems. Through the use of ASSISTments, a cell biology based Microworld was created to target and reinforce scientific observation and knowledge of cells and organellefunction. In a pilot study, students were able to apply their content knowledge and adapt their skills to solve two problem scenarios related to cell health. The activity successfully assessed: students' inquiry skills, prior knowledge of cells, as well as students' abilities to actively learn within the microworld.
