25 Evaluation and Data Collection
Students served in the pathway or number of pathway students served Student grade point average Student attendance Student completion/graduation rates Student work-based learning placements Number of work-based learning hours completed by each student

26 Evaluation and Data Collection
Cal-HOSA membership Students enrolling in postsecondary education Students passing portions of the California High School Exit Examination Students’ perceptions about the effectiveness of the pathway Number of students planning to pursue a health-related field
