Program Effectiveness Data

In addition to the goals and student learning outcomes listed elsewhere on this site, the performance of the program is reflected through program effectiveness data as defined by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).  Program effectiveness data includes the program completion rate, credentialing examination pass rate and job placement rate.   

Five-Year Average Credentialing Examination Pass Rate

This is the number of students that pass the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) certification examination on the first attempt within six months of graduation from the program. 

  • 2017 -  28 out of 28 graduates passed the exam on first attempt = 100% pass rate
  • 2016 – 28 out of 28 graduates passed the exam on first attempt = 100% pass rate
  • 2015 – 25 out of 25 graduates passed the exam on first attempt = 100% pass rate
  • 2014 - 30 out of 30 graduates passed the exam on first attempt = 100% pass rate
  • 2013 - 29 out of 29 graduates passed the exam on first attempt = 100% pass rate
  • Five-year Average Pass Rate 140/140 = 100%

Five-Year Average Job Placement Rate

This is the number of graduates that gain employment in the radiologic sciences within twelve months of graduation compared to the number of graduates actively seeking employment. In the calculation, only the number of students who actively sought employment in Radiography for the years 2013-2017 The figure reflects an average over a five-year span.  For 2013-2017, graduates from May and December cohorts were combined.

  • 2017 graduates -  28 out of 28 graduates who sought employment gained employment =100%
  • 2016 graduates – 12 out of 12 graduates who sought employment gained employment =100% (An additional 13 successfully pursued educational advancement)
  • 2015 graduates - 19 out of 20 graduates who sought employment gained employment = 95.0%
  • 2014 graduates - 17 out of 19 graduates who sought employment gained employment = 89.0%
  • 2013 graduates - 19 out of 24 graduates who sought employment gained employment = 79.0%
  • Five-year Average Job Placement Rate =92.6 %

Program Completion Rate

This is an annual measurement of the number of students that completed the program divided by the number of students who were initially enrolled in that cohort plus students who re-entered with that cohort.

January 1 through December 31, 2017:  Twenty-eight students completed the program in 2017.  Forty-seven students were initially enrolled in that cohort and three students re-entered with that cohort.  28/47 = 60% Program Completion Rate
