California Diploma Project: Validity Study Technical Report. This validity study examines two research questions:
- How applicable are the Health Science and Medical Technology Standards to entry-level postsecondary courses and workforce expectations?
- How important are the Health Science and Medical Technology Standards to success in postsecondary courses and workforce expectations?
The rationale for conducting this initial validity study is to gauge if the updated Health Science Standards are consistent with the expectations from current entry-level health sector instructors and employers. This study provides a snapshot of the relationship of the Standards to current practice.
