This review tool for the STAAR EOC Biology exam. There is a differentiated version and it can be used as a booklet. This review covers all readiness and supporting TEKS for Reporting Category 3: Evolution and Classification.
TEKS B.7 and B.8 included and clearly outlined.
3 pages- B.7 (A) Analyze and evaluate how evidence of common ancestry among groups is provided by the fossil record, biogeography, and homologies, including anatomical, molecular and development.
1 page- B.7 (B) Examine scientific explanations of abrupt appearance and stasis in the fossil record
2 pages- B.7 (C) Analyze and evaluate how natural selection produces change in populations, not individuals
2 pages- B.7 (D) Analyze and evaluate how the elements of natural selection, including inherited variation, the potential to produce more offspring than can survive, and a finite supply of resources, result in differential reproductive success.
2 pages- B.7 (E) Analyze and evaluate the relationship of natural selection to the adaptation and to the development of diversity in and among species.
2 pages- B.7 (F) Analyze other evolutionary mechanisms, including genetic drift, gene flow, mutation, and recombination.
1 page- B.8 (A) Define taxonomy and recognize the importance of a standardized taxonomic system to the scientific community.
2 pages- B.8 (B) Categorize organisms using a hierarchical classification system based on similarities and differences
1 page- B.8 (C) Compare characteristics of taxonomic groups, including archaea, bacteria, fungi, plants, and animals
15 pages total with optional cover page to make a booklet.
An alternate version is available that has guided answers.
