HS-LS1-4: Cellular Division and Differentiation
Use a model to illustrate the role of cellular division (mitosis) and differentiation in producing and maintaining complex organisms. (Systems and System Models)
Clarification Statement: none
Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include specific gene control mechanisms or rote memorization of the steps of mitosis.
The following assessments were created by science teachers hoping to better understand the NGSS. In most cases teachers went from standard to assessment in around an hour. These are drafts and should be used accordingly. Feel free to improve these assessments or contribute to the collection. Learn more about assessment design here.
