Criterion-Referenced Test Frameworks
F.10.3 b: Understand that most human characteristics, including behavior, are determined by two or more genes and environmental factors.
D.10.1 a: Identify and compare three basic particles of the atom (proton, neutron, and electron).
D.10.1 c: Identify and compare the three states of matter based on motion and distance between particles.
D.10.1 d: Identify how matter changes during physical and chemical interactions.
D.10.1 f: Illustrate that bonds within a molecule are created when electrons are transferred or shared.
D.10.1 g: Describe that energy is required to change the state of matter.
F.10.6 a: Understand that genetic variation arises from random events, but natural selection which acts on genetic variation, is not random.
F.10.6 b: Understand that natural selection is the process by which advantageous variations increase the chance for survival and reproduction of the organisms that possess them.
D.10.4 b: Explain how substances interact to form new substances through the transfer or sharing of electrons.
F.10.6 c: Understand that genetic variation arises from sexual reproduction, genetic recombination (meiosis and crossing over) and mutation.
D.10.4 c: Describe that matter is conserved in physical and chemical changes.
F.10.6 d: Understand that natural selection acts on populations, not individual organisms.
D.10.4 d: Identify factors that affect the rate of a chemical reaction.
F.10.6 e: Evolution is a change in species over time through the process of natural selection.
D.10.5 a: Identify patterns in the periodic table such as number of protons, atomic mass, and number of valence electrons.
F.10.8 a: Understand that ecosystems change.
F.10.8 b: Describe ecosystems using the following science themes: change, constancy, equilibrium, evolution, order, organization, systems.
D.10.7 a: Describe and apply Newton's three laws of motion.
D.10.7 b: Interpret motion graphs including position, acceleration, and velocity.
F.10.9 a: Understand food chains, food webs, and ecosystems.
D.10.7 c: Identify and evaluate forces acting on objects.
F.10.9 c: Understand that there are processes (examples: photosynthesis, cellular respiration, digestion and metabolism) that store and release energy.
D.10.7 e: Describe and differentiate between kinetic and potential energy.
D.10.8 a: Identify gravity as an attractive force between two or more objects that have mass (mass vs. weight).
D.10.8 b: Identify the electrostatic force as the force that exists between two or more charged objects.
F.10.10 c: Understand that the availability of matter and energy limits the distribution and abundance of organisms and populations.

D.10.9 e: Describe that heat energy can be transferred by conduction, convection, and radiation.
F.10.12 a: Understand how the sensory and nervous systems of various organisms react to the internal and external environment and transmit survival or learning stimuli to cause changes in behavior or responses.
E.10.4 a: Conduct an analysis that includes costs, benefits and risks, limitations of the resource, impact on the environment of human resource use.
F.10.1 a: Compare and contrast the cell structures and functions of cells for both single-celled and multiple-celled organisms.
F.10.1 b: Identify cell organelles and describe their basic life functions.
