The title says it all: is there a table that sums up the parameters, the assumptions/symmetries, and the (most important) predictions of the standard model?

Before answering, please see our policy on resource recommendation questions. Please write substantial answers that detail the style, content, and prerequisites of the book, paper or other resource. Explain the nature of the resource so that readers can decide which one is best suited for them rather than relying on the opinions of others. Answers containing only a reference to a book or paper will be removed!

Yes, indeed. There is a working group called the 'particle data group' operating

The particle data listing

Where they sum up all experimental results, have short reviews about the physics behind it, also explaining the implicit assumptions made and give bounds on the most popular extensions of the standard model.

This link might be helpful:

It has a fairly detailed description of the SM Lagrangian.

Thanks, that is definitely useful. – Hunter May 21 '14 at 17:50

For a less-technical summary you should examine the posters etc. produced by the Contemporary Physics Education Project.
