Alignment Study of the Health Sciences and Medical Technology Draft Standards and California’s Exit Level Common Core State Standards.
This alignment study examines two dimensions of alignment, looking at both content and cognitive complexity. Using a modified version of the methodology developed by the Regional Educational Laboratory Southwest, this study addresses the following research questions:
• To what extent are the knowledge and skills found in the CA CTE Health Science Standards the same or different (aligned) to the augmented CCSS?
• How does the cognitive complexity of the CA CTE Health Science Standards compare to the augmented CCSS?
