EVALUATION CRITERIA


The general evaluation criteria apply to each grade level and are to be evaluated for each grade level unless otherwise speci
fied. The
se criteria consist of
information critical to the development of all grade levels. In reading the general evaluation criteria and subsequent speci
fic grade level criteria,
e.g. means
“examples of” and i.e. means that “each of” those items must be address
ed.
Eighty percent of the combined general and specific criteria must be met with I
(In

This course is designed to provide knowledge, skills, and competencies regarding the application of biotechnology to
agriscience. The course establishes a basic understanding of biotechnology, genetics, and agricultural applications a
nd
explores related careers. Safety instruction is integrated into all activities.
Teachers should provide each student with real
world learning opportunities and instruction related to selection, development, and maintenance of individual Supervised
Agri
cultural Experience (SAE) programs. Students are encouraged to become active members of FFA, the national youth
organization for those enrolled in agricultural education. FFA is an integral component of the program and provides
curricular opportunities t
hat enhance student achievement. Teachers should utilize relevant FFA activities to support
experiential learning.
