Program Effectiveness Data
The information presented below reflects the radiography program’s 2012 annual report to the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).
Program Completion Rate
Program Completion Rate is calculated by dividing the number of students who complete the program with the cohort by the number who enrolled in the cohort initially and subsequently (for example, transfer students or re-admits). The total number of graduates from all cohorts during the January 1 – December 31, 2012 reporting period was 82%. There were 18 graduates of the 22 that were expected to complete the program in 2012.
Credentialing Examination Pass Rate
Credentialing examination pass rate is defined as the number of graduates who pass the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) credentialing examination compared to the number of graduates who take the examination. Consistent with JRCERT STANDARDS, programs must document a five-year credentialing examination pass rate average of not less than 75% at first attempt, within six months of graduation. The program’s credentialing examination pass rate stated as an average for the reporting period of January 1, 2008 to December 31, 2012 was 88%. Forty-nine of the 56 graduates of this program taking the ARRT certification examination within six months of graduation passed on first attempt.
Job Placement Rate
Job placement rate is defined as the number of graduates employed in the radiologic sciences compared to the number of graduates actively seeking employment in the radiologic sciences. Consistent with JRCERT STANDARDS, programs must document a five-year average job placement rate of not less than 75% within six months of graduation. Considering only graduates during the period January 1, 2008 – December 31, 2012 who actively sought employment, our reported job placement rate is 80%. Forty-one of the fifty-one graduates obtained employment in the radiologic sciences field within six months of graduation.
