Measurable Student Learning Outcomes
1. List the organs of the endocrine system and the hormones each organ produces.
2. Discuss the composition and physical characteristics of whole blood including the mechanism of blood clotting.
3. Relate the various components of the cardiovascular system to each other and to the maintenance of homeostasis.
4. Define human resistance and identify the forms and properties of immunity and relate autoimmune disorders to immune mechanisms.
5. Describe basic anatomy, physiology and organization of the lymphatic system.
6. Evaluate the basic anatomy of the respiratory system and describe the functions performed by this system.
7. Describe the basic anatomy of the digestive system and outline the role of each digestive organ.
8. Describe basic anatomy, physiology and organization of the urinary system and explain how urine is produced.
9. Describe basic anatomy, physiology and organization of the reproductive system.
10. Explain the processes of fertilization, embryonic development, fetal development and birth.
11. Apply the basic foundations of human anatomy and physiology to a specific set of demonstrable lab skills.  
Internal/External Standards Accreditation
1. List the organs of the endocrine system and describe the physiological role of the hormones produced by the various glands.
2. Successfully identify the various blood cells found in the human body.
3. List the major steps involved in blood clotting.
4. Using the basic anatomy of the heart, trace the pathway of blood through the heart.
5. Accurately describe the major differences between arteries and veins.
6. List the organs of the lymphatic system and their role in the development of immunity in humans.
7. List the organs of the respiratory system and describe the physical principles governing ventilation and diffusion of gases throughout the body.
8. Accurately portray the relationship between the structure and function of the various organs of the digestive system.
9. List the major organs of the urinary system and describe how wastes are removed from the blood and excreted in the urine.
10. Accurately describe the physiology of fluid and electrolyte regulation and relate it to the buffering systems that balance the pH of bodily fluids.
11. List the major organs of the male and female reproductive systems and explain how gametes are formed by each sex.
12. Successfully explain the processes of fertilization, embryonic development, fetal development and birth.
13. Actively and successfully complete a series of laboratory experiments or field trips in which observation and critical reasoning skills are employed in the development of detail report writing. Laboratory assignments may be completed independently or in groups.
