At least regarding the Venn Diagram I kept digging and found out. It is in
the 6th grade May-June Indicators. There are no more post-March, but there
are post-May. The information is in a July 2009 letter. It's just a little
frustrating. If the tests are supposed to be this important it would be nice
if it was very very very clear to myself and the students exactly what and
how, etc....

Statistics and Probability
Collection of Data
6.S.1 Develop the concept of sampling when collecting data from a
population and decide the best method to collect data for a particular
question May-June

Statistics and Probability
Organization and Display of Data
6.S.2 Record data in a frequency table May-June
6.S.3 Construct Venn diagrams to sort data May-June
6.S.4 Determine and justify the most appropriate graph to display a given
set
of data (pictograph, bar graph, line graph, histogram, or circle
graph) May-June
