to recognize and acknowledge that occupational analyses and examination validation studies are fundamental components of licensure programs. These fundamental components can support quality examinations and be defended against challenge only when legal and recognized professional testing standards are applied. To promote reliability and validity, these legal and professional testing standards must also be used during the establishment, implementation, and maintenance of licensure examinations. Section 139 of the Business and Professions Code (B&P Section 139) requires that all boards, bureaus, and programs administered by the Department of Consumer Affairs (hereinafter referred to as the department) report annually to the director on their respective method for ensuring that every licensing examination administered by or pursuant to contract be subject to periodic evaluation. B&P Section 139 and California Government Code Section 12944 were established to ensure that the examinations are fair to candidates and assess job-related competencies relevant to current and safe practice. Specifically, boards, bureaus, and programs are required to provide information about the following: Frequency of validation studies performed and the status of ongoing test development/validation; and Estimate of costs and personnel required for performing examination-related functions. Assembly Bill 1105 (Jackson, Chapter 67, Statutes of 1999) amended B&P Section 139 and requires that the department develop a policy on occupational analyses, examination development, and examination validation. This policy was developed and submitted to the Legislature in September 1999. The policy was accepted by the Legislature and subsequently distributed to all boards, bureaus, and programs in April 2000. Also pursuant to AB 1105, the department is required to compile the individual board, bureau, and program information and submit it to the appropriate fiscal, policy, and sunset review committees of the Legislature by September 30 of each year. The intent of the Legislature is to ensure that the method specified in the individual board, bureau, and program report is consistent with the policy developed by the department. The fiscal, policy, and sunset review committees of the Legislature will use information in the report and the department s Examination Validation Policy during their reviews of regulatory boards, bureaus, and programs. 4This report is a compilation of the information required by B&P Section 139 for all regulatory boards, bureaus, and programs administered by the department and includes the State Board of Chiropractic Examiners and the Osteopathic Medical Board of California. Each of these entities submitted the completed forms to the department s Office of Examination Resources (OER) for compilation. The OER has functioned as a resource to the department s boards, bureaus, and programs in the preparation of this report to meet the mandated requirements of B&P Section 139. The OER also performs periodic evaluations, examination validation, and examination development services for some of the boards, bureaus, and programs affected by Section 139. B&P Section 139 is printed in its entirety on pages six (6) and seven (7) of this report. A sample of the formats used for gathering the data specific to examination evaluation, validation, and development for the boards, bureaus, and programs affected by Section 139 may be found on pages eleven (11) through thirteen (13) of this document. Specific questions regarding the reported information should be addressed to the reporting board, bureau, and program entity. Copies of the department s Examination Validation Policy and additional copies of this report may be obtained from the Department of Consumer Affairs, Office of Examination Resources, 2420 Del Paso Road, Suite 265, Sacramento, California 95834. 5 SECTION 139 OF THE BUSINESS AND PROFESSIONS CODE (a) The Legislature finds and declares that occupational analyses and examination validation studies are fundamental components of licensure programs. It is the intent of the Legislature that the policy developed by the department pursuant to subdivision (b) be used by the fiscal, policy, and sunset review committees of the Legislature in their annual reviews of these boards, programs, bureaus, and divisions. (b) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the department shall develop, in consultation with the boards, programs, bureaus, and divisions under its jurisdiction, and the Osteopathic Medical Board of California and the State Board of Chiropractic Examiners, a policy regarding examination development and validation, and occupational analysis. The department shall finalize and distribute this policy by September 30, 1999, to each of the boards, programs, bureaus, and divisions under its jurisdiction and to the Osteopathic Medical Board of California and the State Board of Chiropractic Examiners. This policy shall be submitted in draft form at least 30 days prior to that date to the appropriate fiscal, policy, and sunset review committees of the Legislature for review. This policy shall address, but shall not be limited to, the following issues: (1) An appropriate schedule for examination validation and occupational analyses, and circumstances under which more frequent reviews are appropriate. (2) Minimum requirements for psychometrically sound examination validation, examination development, and occupational analyses, including standards for sufficient number of test items. (3) Standards for review of state and national examinations. (4) Setting of passing standards. (5) Appropriate funding sources for examination validations and occupational analyses. (6) Conditions under which boards, programs, and bureaus should use internal and external entities to conduct these reviews. (7) Standards for determining appropriate costs of reviews of different types of examinations, measured in terms of hours required. (8) Conditions under which it is appropriate to fund permanent and limited term positions within a board, program, or bureau to manage these reviews. 6 (c) Every regulatory board and bureau, as defined in Section 22, and every program and bureau administered by the department, the Osteopathic Medical Board of California and the State Board of Chiropractic Examiners, shall submit to the director on or before December 1, 1999, and on or before December 1 of each subsequent year, its method for ensuring that every licensing examination administered by or pursuant to contract with the board is subject to periodic evaluation. The evaluation shall include the following: (1) a description of the occupational analysis serving as the basis for the examination; (2) sufficient item analysis data to permit a psychometric evaluation of the items; (3) an assessment of the appropriateness of prerequisites for admittance to the examination; and (4) an estimate of the costs and personnel required to perform these functions. The evaluation shall be revised and a new evaluation submitted to the director whenever, in the judgment of the board, program, or bureau, there is a substantial change in the examination or the prerequisites for admittance to the examination. 7(d) The evaluation may be conducted by the board, program, or bureau, the Office of Examination Resources of the department, the Osteopathic Medical Board of California, or the State Board of Chiropractic Examiners or pursuant to a contract with a qualified private testing firm. A board, program, or bureau that provides for development or administration of a licensing examination pursuant to contract with a public or private entity may rely on an occupational analysis or item analysis conducted by that entity. The department shall compile this information, along with a schedule specifying when examination validations and occupational analyses shall be performed, and submit it to the appropriate fiscal, policy, and sunset review committees of the Legislature by September 30 of each year. It is the intent of the Legislature that the method specified in this report be consistent with the policy developed by the department pursuant to subdivision (b).

The ASHA charges a semiautonomous body to conduct research on standards for national certification in the field of speech-language pathology and audiology. The data derived from this research is used to evaluate and, if necessary, modify the national standards. Since the Board deems that the standards required for the national Certificate in Clinical Competence for Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology is equivalent to the requirements for licensure, the national research is examined by the Board for potential impact to licensing requirements. The most recent research conducted by the ASHA's standards body was in 2000-2001. The research prompted a change in national standards for speech-language pathology effective 2005 and 2007 for audiology.
