Numbers Don’t Lie: A Review of the San Diego SFST Study

Course Description:
The 1998 report “Validation of the Standardized Field Sobriety Test Battery at BACs Below 0.10 Percent”, more commonly known as the “San Diego Study”, includes data that is central to the modern acceptance of sobriety testing in courts of law. Proper interpretation of the study’s results is, therefore, a highly contested matter.

This course will provide an overview of types of tests, associated terminology, peripheral considerations, and important metrics to understanding the performance of a test. These concepts are then applied to results of the San Diego Study to assist the learner with effective discussion of its findings.
