This report describes the June 1992 assessment of the Biologie 200 curriculum in schools in Manitoba, Canada. It contains a description and analysis of the test results and the teacher survey. The report also includes recommendations on ways to improve the Biologie 200 curriculum and how it is taught in the French Immersion program and Franco-Manitoban schools. The test consisted of the core topics: Cell, Biochemistry, Digestion, Transportation, Respiratory System, Excretory System, Nervous System, Reproduction and Development, and Support and Movement. The mean performance of students by subtests ranges from 28.3% (Support and Movement) to 61.6% (Cell). This indicates some weakness in the implementation of the curriculum. Topics in which students performed better were: Cell (61.7%), Digestion (57.9%), Respiratory System (56.1%), and Excretory System (55.5%). Sample test items are reported. (PR)
