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. 

  • Fall 2019 - Spring 2020    34 out of 34 graduates passed the exam on first attempt = 100% pass rate
  • Fall 2018 - Spring 2019    36 out of 37 graduates passed the exam on first attempt =  97% pass rate
  • Fall 2017 - Spring 2018    30 out of 31 graduates passed the exam on first attempt =  97% pass rate
  • Fall 2016 - Spring 2017    25 out of 25 graduates passed the exam on first attempt = 100% pass rate
  • Fall 2015 - Spring 2016    27 out of 27 graduates passed the exam on first attempt = 100% pass rate
  • Five-year Average Pass Rate 152/154 = 99%

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. The numbers also reflect students who continued their education in advanced modalities. In the calculation, only the number of students who actively sought employment or continued their education in Imaging Sciences for the years 2015-2020. The figure reflects an average over a five-year span.  For Fall 2015- Spring 2020, graduates from May and December cohorts were combined. 

  • Fall 2019 - Spring 2020  31 out of 31 graduates who sought employment gained employment =100%
  • Fall 2018 - Spring 2019  35 out of 36 graduates who sought employment gained employment =  97%
  • Fall 2017 - Spring 2018  30 out of 30 graduates who sought employment gained employment =100%
  • Fall 2016 - Spring 2017  23 out of 23 graduates who sought employment gained employment =100% 
  • Fall 2015 - Spring 2016  24 out of 24 graduates who sought employment gained employment = 100%
  • Five-year Average Job Placement Rate  143/144 = 99%

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 a cohort plus students who re-entered with a cohort.  The numbers reflect dual entry.  One cohort completes in the fall semester and one cohort completes in the spring semester.

January 1 through December 31, 2020: Thirty-one students completed the program in 2020.  Thirty-nine students were initially enrolled in the 2 cohorts and a total of  two students re-entered in those cohorts.  31/39 = 79% Program Completion Rate
