Program Effectiveness Data

In addition to the goals and student learning outcomes, the performance of the radiography program is reflected through program effectiveness data as defined by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) (20 N. Wacker Drive, Suite 2850, Chicago, IL 60606-3182, 312-704-5300, www.jrcert.org). Program effectiveness data includes the program completion rate, credentialing examination pass rate and job placement rate.  Explanations of these measures and program data are listed below.

 

First-Time Pass Rate on ARRT Certification Registry

Five-Year average for Graduates of the Radiography Program will maintain a 75% credentialing examination pass rate or better for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologist Radiography Examination on first attempt taken within six months of gradation.
