Laboratory courses will expose students to the breadth of biological concepts by including cell and molecular biology, organismal structure and function, genetics and heredity, evolution, and ecology. Courses will engage students in science as a structured process that generates and refines knowledge through evidence-based decisions. Courses will emphasize the value and contributions of life science to society. Inclusion of scientific process skills development and the importance of science to society must each be evident in at least 25% of the course. A minimum of 50% of lab activities must show evidence of the development of science process skills. Policies on the acceptance of AP credit vary among academic programs and from institution to institution, so AP credit toward the GECC or major requirements is not guaranteed. A score of 3 or higher on the AP Biology exam may be considered as equivalent to successful completion of postsecondary courses approved for IAI GECC L1 900. Feb 2016
