Results from the 9th grade Biology Themes and Tools of Life Q1 benchmark performance (10/06/2010):

Standards/Clusters Tested
Standard/Cluster Description # Items
California
SCI.9-12.BI.1.a ( 9, 10, 11, 12 )
Students know cells are enclosed within semipermeable membranes that regulate their interaction with their surroundings. 4
California
SCI.9-12.BI.8.a ( 9, 10, 11, 12 )
Students know how natural selection determines the differential survival of groups of organisms. 5
California
SCI.9-12.BI.1.b ( 9, 10, 11, 12 )
Students know enzymes are proteins that catalyze biochemical reactions without altering the reaction equilibrium and the activities of enzymes depend on the temperature, ionic conditions, and the pH of the surroundings. 7
California
SCI.9-12.BI.1.c ( 9, 10, 11, 12 )
Students know how prokaryotic cells, eukaryotic cells (including those from plants and animals), and viruses differ in complexity and general structure. 1
California
SCI.9-12.BI.9.i ( 9, 10, 11, 12 )
Students know how hormones (including digestive, reproductive, osmoregulatory) provide internal feedback mechanisms for homeostasis at the cellular level and in whole organisms. 3
California
SCI.9-12.BI.2.a ( 9, 10, 11, 12 )
Students know meiosis is an early step in sexual reproduction in which the pairs of chromosomes separate and segregate randomly during cell division to produce gametes containing one chromosome of each type. 3
California
SCI.9-12.BI.1.g ( 9, 10, 11, 12 )
Students know the role of the mitochondria in making stored chemical-bond energy available to cells by completing the breakdown of glucose to carbon dioxide. 3
California
SCI.9-12.BI.1.h ( 9, 10, 11, 12 )
Students know most macromolecules (polysaccharides, nucleic acids, proteins, lipids) in cells and organisms are synthesized from a small collection of simple precursors. 3
California
SCI.9-12.BI.7.a ( 9, 10, 11, 12 )
Students know why natural selection acts on the phenotype rather than the genotype of an organism. 1
California
SCI.9-12.ES.7.b ( 9, 10, 11, 12 )
Students know the global carbon cycle: the different physical and chemical forms of carbon in the atmosphere, oceans, biomass, fossil fuels, and the movement of carbon among these reservoirs. 1
California
SCI.9-12.ES.7.a ( 9, 10, 11, 12 )
Students know the carbon cycle of photosynthesis and respiration and the nitrogen cycle. 1
California
SCI.9-12.BI.6.d ( 9, 10, 11, 12 )
Students know how water, carbon, and nitrogen cycle between abiotic resources and organic matter in the ecosystem and how oxygen cycles through photosynthesis and respiration. 1
California
SCI.9-12.BI.6.e ( 9, 10, 11, 12 )
Students know a vital part of an ecosystem is the stability of its producers and decomposers. 1
