How will students understand each concept is associated with learning outcomes proposed by teachers and on their conceptual development. Survey "outcomes / accomplishments at the beginning and end of the educational cycle" gathered views of nature and biology teachers in elementary schools and high schools from all over the Croatia. A total of 121 questionnaires were analyzed and tested in seven basic areas of nature and biology: the structure of living things, energy, reproduction, balance, interdependence, diversity and science. Investigated are: how do teachers conceptually understand examined biological fields, for all proposed outcomes determined by the level of knowledge according to the Bloom's taxonomy. Learning outcomes obtained by analyzing the survey are compared conceptually and by skill levels, with prescribed learning outcomes in the current curriculum in biology for elementary school and high school and with the Ispitni katalog za državnu maturu. With the analysis of the misconceptions that the teachers noted in students in examined areas of biology, the most problematic concepts for students were determined and how some alternative concepts affect students ability to acquire scientific.
