Measurable Student Learning Outcomes
1.(Comprehension Level) List the organs of the endocrine system and describe the physiological role of the hormones produced by the various glands.
2.(Comprehension Level) Discuss the composition and physical characteristics of whole blood including the mechanism of blood clotting. Understand the ABO system of blood typing.
3. (Evaluation Level) Relate the anatomy of the heart to its physiology by comparing each deflection on an ECG recording to the heart chamber that is affected.
4. (Comprehension Level) Accurately describe the major differences between arteries and veins.
5. (Comprehension Level) List the organs of the lymphatic system and understand their role in the development of immunity in humans. Describe the function of B cells and T cells.
6. (Comprehension Level) List the organs of the respiratory system and describe the physical principles governing ventilation and diffusion of gases throughout the body.
7. (Synthesis Level) Accurately portray the relationship between the structure and function of the various organs of the digestive system. In addition, explain the control of acid secretion, chemical and mechanical digestion and the physiology of intestinal absorption of nutrients and water.
8. (Comprehension Level) List the organs of the urinary system and describe how wastes are filtered from the blood and excreted in the urine. Understand the similarities and differences between hydrostatic and osmotic pressures.
9. (Synthesis Level) Accurately describe the physiology of fluid and electrolyte regulation and relate it to the buffering systems that balance the pH of bodily fluids. Explain the concept of pH and understand how it is measured.
10. (Comprehension Level) List the major organs of the male and female reproductive systems and explain how gametes are formed by each sex.
11. (Comprehension Level) Successfully explain the processes of fertilization, embryonic development, fetal development and birth.
12. (Synthesis Level) Successfully complete a series of laboratory (wet vs. virtual) experiments in which observation, data collection and critical reasoning skills are employed in completing a lab report. Laboratory assignments may be completed independently or in groups.
